Mining the Seams at Warwickshire County Record Office – Volunteer opportunity

Image Posted on

Mining the Seams, our remote volunteering project, is still very active and we are looking for new people to join us. 
We’re transcribing compensation ledgers from the Midland Colliery Owners’ Mutual Indemnity Company to create a searchable database of information from compensation claims from 1899 – 1940.  Everything is done remotely with documents shared via the internet.
Please see flyer and a little more information about the volunteer role to this email. If anyone is interested in joining us, then all they would need to do is email us at miningtheseams@warwickshire.gov.uk
and we’ll be able to tell them more and sign them up fully from there.
You can see an example of some of the maps we are also working with on the short You Tube video: Hall End Colliery map
