Using Original Sources

Dealing with original sources, including documents is great, but has often presented challenges.

What an incredible concept! Making original material accessible to all and revealing history from primary sources.

Making original documents readily available, is an amazing goal.How exciting. must it be to realise you are able to read and transcribe a document which may be hundreds of years old. Having attempted to transcribe ancestor’s wills etc and having enjoyed history at school, I only wish I had had this opportunity.Perhaps in the future there will be many more people, brave enough to seek original documents from archives.

This has the possibility to transform many fields of research, not just family research with more people feeling confident to access original material.
