Somerset newspapers from 1914-1918 contain a vast amount of information about the First World War’s impact on the county.
As part of the Somerset Remembers project a team of volunteers will index stories relating to the war. This index will be made available to researchers who might be looking for information about a particular person or place. Interesting stories may also be used in the Somerset Remembers temporary exhibition.
The volunteer team are due to start on this project in June and there are still a number of places available for people interested in working on this important project. This research will take place at the Heritage Centre or at a relevant library. If you are interested in taking part please contact the Somerset Heritage Service.
