In conjunction with The Friends of Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service, Midland Ancestors has part-funded a project to digitise some tithe maps for the period 1836-1845. The tithe schedules for the maps can be searched on Owner, Occupier, Parish or Plot Number. The plot numbers are clearly shown on the high quality map images. Parishes covered by our sponsorship of this project are :- Darlaston, Walsall, Wednesbury, West Bromwich, and Wolverhampton. The maps can be viewed in the Family History Centre at the BMI.
This Midland Ancestors hosted event at the MAC saw 247 visitors. Thanks are due to them all, society members, the general public and all stall holders for their support, proving that it was a worthwhile exercise and addition to the local and family history scene.
