Previous projects

Over the past ten to fifteen years or so we have run a variety of externally funded projects which have resulted in online resources for local, national and  family historians.  Although these projects are now complete, the online resources are still available for you to use.  So here is some background and links to the resources.

Staffordshire Medical Officer of Health Project (2016)

This project made the correspondence for Staffordshire’s County and District Medical Officers of Health accessible for the first time and delved into the topics of health and welfare in early 20th century Staffordshire.  It was funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Staffordshire Appeals Project (2014-2017)

This project investigated the surviving records of the tribunals concerning requests for exemption from call-up for military service during World War I, and the appeals process.  The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We explored and recorded the experiences of people evacuated to Staffordshire as children during World War II and the Staffordshire families who hosted them.  The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Sutherland Papers Project (2006-2008)

With the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund and a wide range of other donors and volunteers, the Archive Service purchased the Sutherland Papers and built a website showcasing the papers and the wide range of information that they contain.  An index to some types of records was also created by volunteers.
