Other Useful Societies and groups

 

  • Additional Mike Petty Resources On-line.

    Below is the link to an important new resource set up by Mike Petty for people researching Cambridge, Cambridgeshire or the fens. All this is free to use and has been created by Mike Petty bit.ly/CambsCollection and is well worth a click. It includes a Bibliography of thousands of Cambridgeshire books so you can track down what has been written about your topic.

  • There is a Cambridgeshire Scrapbook recording thousands of fascinating stories from Cambridge papers between 1897 and 1990 and extracts of newspaper stories on Ely from 1820 to 1860. A Century of Cambridge News records events 1888 onwards – war, theatre, education, housing etc.
    Add a large file of Memories and Reflections on the local area, a major history of the village of Stretham, and Pickwick’s Cambridge Scrapbook recording people and events of the 1820s. Then there is a list of over 17,000 illustrations. Plus more. With more to come.
