Magazine index

Postby newburypark » Thu Aug 14, 2008 5:50 am

Are there any plans to produce a cross referencing index to cover the main subject headings e.g. Police Records, in the magazine for future referencing?

It would save having to to check every magazine for a specific article.

Thanks for the suggestion.

We recognise the need for an index and we will produce one at some point in the future.

I can't set any dates at the moment but it is on our agenda.

Thanks,

An index - or at least a list of cover subjects would be very helpful in deciding which back issues to buy. At the moment there is no way of discovering what has been covered in previous magazines.

Thanks for the guide to back issues - maybe you could interest your webmaster to make up a simple webpage with a link from the magazine site? It could earn a few pounds[:)]

Good News is that in this month's (OCT) issue it states that an index will be included in both the mag and the CD in the December Issue.
Interested in the surname SNELL circa 1910, Middlesex. and Claudia Vail nee Snell, living and married in Canada from about 1912/16.
