      A2A Update, April 2005

      Descriptions of records of a duel fought by William Lord Byron in 1765
      added to the database

      The latest update to A2A (Access to Archives) - the English strand of
      the UK archives network at http://www.a2a.org.uk - took place on
      Thursday 28 April 2005. 3,380 catalogues were added to A2A. The
      database now contains over 7.7 million catalogue entries, in over 89,000
      catalogue files, describing archives held in 387 record offices,
      libraries, museums and other repositories all over England.

      The new additions at this update include finding aids describing the
      following:

      * A wide range of school records held at Northumberland Record Office,
      and parish records held at Teesside Archives, contributed through the
      locally-funded North East regional project Bell, Book and Candle;
      * Records relating to Byron's duel at the Star and Garter on Pall Mall
      from City of Westminster Archives Centre, contributed through the
      HLF-funded project Flesh and Blood;
      * A range of family and estate papers held at Hertfordshire Archives and
      Local Studies, contributed through the HLF-funded project Hidden Talent;
      * Football and Rugby Union club records held at Leicestershire,

      Midlands HLF-funded project Home and Abroad;
      * Records of London markets held at Corporation of London Records
      Office, contributed through the HLF-funded project Magpie's Nest in
      London;
      * A wide range of parish and other local government records held by East
      Riding of Yorkshire Archives and Records Service, contributed through
      the HLF-funded project Reaching Out Across the Riding;

      Record Office, and Plymouth and West Devon Record Office, contributed

      Office and contributed through the HLF-funded project Sussex Parish
      Chest;
      * and records of a number of businesses in the Bradford and Kirklees
      areas, held at West Yorkshire Archive Service, and contributed through
      the HLF-funded project Yorkshire Made.

      Don't forget that you can restrict your A2A search to the catalogues
      added at this update by using the Dates of Catalogues feature on the
      standard Search page - why not give it a try?

      We welcome Mohibur Rahman as System Support Officer, replacing Jinal

      Albert Edward Christopher on 22 March; Mum, Dad and baby Albert are all
      doing well!

      A2A is the English strand of the UK archives network; its database at
      http://www.a2a.org.uk already contains the electronic equivalent of over
      700,000 catalogue pages describing archives held across England in
      national, local and specialist repositories and dating from the 700s to
      the present day. The A2A programme will make a further 150,000
      catalogue pages available on the web by July 2005.
