Hampshire History Resources Guide and Online Library

In time for Halloween Oct 2019 -November 2019 New and improved Hampshire History Resources Guide, currently circa 500 entries and growing. 

We are improving our technology with a view to making available more data and interactive content on Hampshire History. It is all part of a work in progress and here we are looking to reference a wide variety of resources not just on Hampshire overall but as specific as the place names in our Hampshire History Gazetteer, Historic Periods, Family Names, Posts and Data Projects. This is  a BETA release so we welcome feedback and additions. We will provide a form so you can make suggestions which we can then curate and add, as appropriate.
