|Study Area||Holywell-cum-Needingworth, Huntingdonshire|
|About the Study||I have been researching my village since 2011, trying to collect all I can about people, buildings, events, documents etc. This involves talking to people, collecting photographs, online searching, visiting archives etc. As a retired database person, I am capturing all of this into an Access database and trying to relate it all together.
In 2014, I plan to get much of what I have online, allowing for permissions, privacy etc. using TNG (The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding), and integrated with WordPress. I am hoping that it is an open enough technology that I can eventually get in some of the non-people aspects of what I have collected (particularly dwellings and maps).
I enjoy the search, enquiry, following trails, problem resolution, information storage and presentation of the findings. We now have a small group studying our village history, with some doing research into specific aspects like individual families, newspaper articles and transcribing documents.
