Living The Poor Life

During 2009-2010 we have been working on a project with The National Archives (TNA) to catalogue correspondence between the London based Poor Law Commissioners and the Tynemouth Board of Guardians, 1834 - 1855. A team of local volunteers have remotely catalogued this important material that is held by The National Archives in London. Textual descriptions of the documents and images of them are now available to view without charge.  To access this material follow the link below to The National Archives website and enter the series code "MH12" and word "Tynemouth"  in the phrase box of the online TNA catalogue.
