The Hysterical Hystorian

For occasional articles, snippets and announcements by the Resident Historians.These articles are presented in date order, but if you explore the back-catalogue, you may find much of interest. Historical information doesn't really go out of date! Any member of the F&DLHS may add an entry or make a comment to an existing entry once they have got their userID and password from the Webmaster.

If you'd like to publish any interesting material about the history of East Anglia on the site, then please send an email to the Resident Historians at and we'll add it.

Family Historians have their own area on the site, so look there if your main interest is in tracing your family history.

More Censuses and Museums

We have now completed the transcription of the 1891 and 1901 censuses for Foxearth, Liston, Borley and Pentlow. We have the whole transcription, including the details of where each family lived, taken directly from the original. We've also added the transcriptions of the 1891 censues for Belchamp Walter and Belchamp St Pauls.

We thought we'd announce it here out of perversity as the Family Historians tend not to read this column, so they will miss being the first to know about this splendid enhancement of the service. You, on the other hand will be able to smugly hint to your 'Family Historian' friends that something new and exciting is on the site.

At last, we have completed the labour of listing all the Museums and Houses open to the public in the region, along with addresses and contact numbers. This is also available from the main menu. We were amazed by the number of museums around, and how poorly some of them are advertised. Hopefully, it will inspire you to visit them and let us know what you think of them.
