A small team has been working on transcribing17th & 18th centuries Apprentices’ Indentures in Tilney All Saints, and looking into how to present them. Initially the idea was to transcribe from photographs of the originals and present the 51 typed transcriptions in a folder and CD for Wisbech & Fenland Museum, where the originals are archived. But we soon realised that it would be good if the transcriptions were also made more widely available for the use of:
- Tilney All Saints History Group members & friends
- Residents of the village
- Family History research
- Local History research
- Social History students
- Local schools
The result is we have digitise the documents with the transcriptions and published in a book titled 'A Poore Child'.
See below a sample document and its transcription about Annis Auson 1663
