Discussions from Chief Archivists in Local Government Group
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?
