About this Event

The Dugdale Society has been publishing edited transcriptions of Warwickshire's important local historical records dating from the 11th to the 20th Centuries and making them accessible to family, local and academic historians for over 100 years. The records published cover not only the present county but the whole of 'historic Warwickshire' including Birmingham, Coventry, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield.
