Poor law biographies

Staffordshire Archives and Heritage in association with Keele University is working to devise an online dictionary of poor-law biography. This will include the life stories of ordinary people in Staffordshire whose experiences were touched by the Old Poor Law, either because they were a pauper or because they offered goods and services to the parish.

This is an ongoing project and the volunteer group meets on Friday mornings at Staffordshire record office.
