Meeting: 11TH NOVEMBER 2012 in Dallowgill Chapel Schoolroom

OUTCOMES:

  • Phil Holden has very kindly set up a website for the project at www.dallowgill.org.uk and he is happy for people to contact him with suggestions of information for the site
  • The Zenner Family from Lunterstone talked about their interesting trips to the records offices in Northallerton and Bradford and about just how much information there is on Dallowgill to wade through!
  • Some more field names were added to a map of the area.
  • Thanks to Heather Tetley we have transcriptions of the Church and Census records and volunteers took away sections to put onto the computer to make searching easier.
  • Suggestions for talks were discussed, for example someone to explain how to decipher old documents and search them effectively, the vernacular architecture in the Gill and Archaeological sites locally.

The Project sessions will be held at the Methodist Chapel Schoolroom on the second Sunday of the month after the 2pm Chapel Service. £2 per person will cover refreshments and Chapel costs. All are very welcome.

The next meeting will be on Sunday 9th December, after the 2pm Chapel Service.
