Dear All, After the earlier disappointing news of the 1921 census I now have some good news. Thanks to Coventry Family History Society's hard work, we have been provided with a series of databases of original resources that they have kindly given us CD copies off. These have all been downloaded onto Computer no 7 for searching. Titles include Holy Trinity burials 1837-1900, Foleshill St Laurence Parish registers 1564-1837 and Windmill Road cemetery burials 1909-1994 to name but a few. There is also an update to London Road cemetery burials 1972-1994. Please ring on 02476 237583 or email at archives@culturecoventry.com to book a slot during our normal opening hours. With best wishes, Victoria Northridge Archives Manager

Dear All, I hope that you are all well. Here are details of a few events outside of the Archives: I attach details of a free talk that I'm providing at Central Library on Saturday 21 May, 2.00pm - 3.00pm, as part of the ‘Breaking the News’ display. This exhibition will transfer from Central Library to Coventry Archives and will be open from Saturday 18 June to Saturday 27 August. Coventry Archives will also have a stall at the free drop-in Heritage Park Reveals Day on Sunday 22 May, 11.00am - 4.00pm. For more details, click here. We shall be revealing the diary of John Whittingham, a gardener at Stoke Farm between 1746 and 1781, who describes his visit to Charterhouse in 1753 which we have recently digitised. We shall also be highlighting our Coventry Atlas and Coventry Digital resources. Hope to see you there. With many thanks, Victoria Northridge
