Update on the project

Minutes from the General Court begin
Thank you to all of you who have continued to transcribe over the last couple of months. Since our last update, the 36 volumes of Sub-committee minutes have now been completely transcribed by you. Vast amounts of detail were discovered through the transcriptions, and these have kept all of us on the project engrossed.

The General Court rough minutes, that contain details of the regular and annual meetings of the Governors and Guardians of the Foundling Hospital, are the records that are currently being transcribed. There are six volumes of these and they cover a period of 156 years, from the granting of a Royal Charter to establish the Foundling Hospital in 1739, through to 1895. Lots of new and interesting facts have been emerging since you started transcribing these. Read all about these on our message boards here
