The Scowcroft Diaries: a Lancashire resource

If you have family history from east central Lancashire, an area triangulated by Bury/Bolton, Preston and Burnley, there's a new resource coming that may well be of interest.
Amalgamated indexes of several diaries in the possession of Arthur W. Critchley and his Scowcroft relatives are being compiled and will be made available through the initiative of BIFHSGO colleague Bryan Cook.
Compiled from sources, the two major of which cover the years 1772-1884 and 1861-1910, the focus is on local events with some content from the rest of the British Isles and 19th century emigration destinations.
Stay tuned for further information on content and access.
