Bulkeley Diaries Stepping into the 21st Century

For some years, images of the Bulkeley diaries have been available on our website. They are an important resource for our remote users, but recently we have gone one step further.

Now, a transcript of the two diaries is also available online along with the option for users to conduct a quick search throughout all the pages by typing a name or keyword into the search box. This will surely assist those historians who have struggled to read the original in the past.

This work was done in conjunction with Llên Natur, Cymdeithas Edward Llwyd, and Anglesey County Council.

Thanks to all individuals who contributed towards the project, in particular, Sue Walton, the transcriber; Ann Hughes and Marjan Baas-Harmsma who edited and formatted the work and Sam Foster who assisted on the technical aspects.

Find my Past

Thanks to the Bangor Fund Benefactions Group, the Archives Department can now offer free access to Find My Past.

This perfect resource for genealogists can be used in conjunction with our original manuscripts.

Contact the archivist for further details.

Conservation grant awarded to Archives

The Archives and Special Collections have been awarded £12,000 by the National Manuscript Conservation Trust to conserve some of the fragile Jamaica Papers in our care which form part of the Penrhyn Collection.

It is hoped that these valuable documents will be available for consultation by researchers in the Archives from July 2013.

 

New Collections

The Archives regularly receives new collections and the task of cataloguing this material is an important part of the work of the department. Every now and then, a new catalogue is produced.

Remember to visit the Archives regularly to see what new collections are open to the public.
