Local History Recorder

Suffolk Local History Council Local Records Scheme


Suffolk Local History Council runs a Local Records Scheme throughout Suffolk. They administer a network of volunteers to ensure that the 'present' is adequately recorded at local level for the 'future'.

A recorder will note significant happenings in their parish and collect their local parish magazines, leaflets, election pamphlets and newspaper cuttings.

At the end of each year, they are asked to submit a short report summarising the activities of their parish.

The reports are deposited at Suffolk Record Office and available to future researchers together with the collected items.

If you are interested, please look at the recorder's pack at: www.slhc.org.uk

You don't need to be a historian; you don't need any qualifications other than an interest in your parish.

In return you will receive a copy of the SLHC newsletter and be invited to the annual conference specifically for local recorders.
