In the latest CCED update, we have made public all the data we have gathered for the diocese of Exeter after 1760 and linked it to person and place. However, this remains a very incomplete record, as, for a variety of reasons, we were not able to complete record recovery during the funded phase of the project. If there are any local historians in Exeter who might be interested in helping complete our record of the Exeter material, we would be delighted to hear from them. We would not be able to pay a fee for any work done, but would supply the materials and necessary software, and would of course make the material freely available for the researchers’ own purposes, and fully credit their contribution to the project. If anyone is interested, or knows of anyone who might be, please contact Arthur Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to announce another release of updated material to the public CCED website. New material has been added for Exeter, Gloucester and Ely dioceses in the modern period, and a great many clerical personifications and career models have been updated as it becomes possible to merge records following advice from users and checking of existing linkages.
An exciting new development is that a researcher is now actively collecting modern data for Westminster Abbey. Daniel Rignall, an undergraduate research fellow on the project at King’s College London began work a week ago, and we hope by the end of the summer to have mounted this material.
