Preserving History

It seem that documents like these are often discarded today without anyone recognising the wealth of information that they contain for people researching local history or tracing their family tree. I suppose we all have a part to play in preserving history. If you become aware of any old documents that are at risk of being thrown away please consider writing a description. We could include the description in the index and possibly also add a transcription.
