More on the Religious Archives Survey

On September 4th I posted that the National Archives at Kew had commenced working with the Religious Archives Group (RAG) and the Society of Archivists to create a survey of religious archives from all faith traditions. The project came about as the result of an initiative by RAG. At the time of writing a Resource Discovery Officer was to be appointed to see the research through. (For more, see Survey of UK Religious Archives)

So - introducing Claire Muller, the new Resource Discovery Officer! Claire has kindly been in touch to say that further information about the project is now available on the Religious Archives Group website at
http://rylibweb.man.ac.uk/rag2/activities/RAGSurvey.html.

If you can contribute to the research, please do so - religious records lie at the very heart of genealogical research, and the more that we can become aware of what exists, the better chance we have of progressing our efforts. And we would be ever so grateful!
