Description

Welcome to the CALG Group! We exist to promote the preservation and use of archives which are (or, in the opinion of the Group, should be) in the care of local authorities with archive powers in England and Wales. Our objectives are to influence the policies and practices of European, national and local governments, and others, in support of the above aim; to promote the exchange of ideas and information among local authority archive services and with others; and to promote activities in support of the above aim.

I understand the British records association have in the past (and still do?) contacted Solicitors firms with a leaflet about about the value of deeds and suggestions for what they can do with them. It is sadly often the case that even if archive services are offered deeds from local solicitors they are not able to take them due to a lack of resources. I would agree however that they can be a valuable resources espeially for property and local history. So what ideas for tackling this issue are there?
