Wakefield Family History Sharing

Wakefield, in West Yorkshire, was known for its industries, including several coal mines, prior to their closure as uneconomic in the 1980s.

The Wakefield Family History Sharing website at www.wakefieldfhs.org.uk/ has a mixture of free resources and CDs of further local resources available for purchase, all worth exploring if you have family roots in the area.

Carol. the site owner, has been busy photographing, transcribing and investigating people named on local war memorials. There's a blog to keep updated on developments at http://wakefieldfhs.blogspot.com/
