This site was set up with the intention of making letters in private hands and containing familyand/or local & National information, more widely available to researchers across the World.It is mainly intended for family historians with UK ancestry but may be of wider interest to those with a general interest in the period up to about 1950.The letters transcribed on the site are either in the English or Welsh languages. They can be from people in the UK to other parts of the UK or to other parts of the World, or they can be from anywhere in the World to the UK. A few may be internal within countries other than the UK where they refer to people or places in the UK.The letters are indexed by personal names and the index also shows the place of residence of those mentioned and the year the letter was written. The index is atlettershomeindex.htmlWhere the owner of the letter has supplied additional notes these are either included on the letter page or linked from the relevant letter transcript page thus "Link to additional notes".Return to Introductory Page
Similarly where a scanned image of the original letter is available this is linked from the
relevant letter transcript page (scans are not yet available).There will also be a seperate index to scanned letters at Scanned Letter Index. However this is not yet available.In addition to the index to Family Letters from the Past, all names and places etc are included in my overall site search faciility.
