Post Office appointment books to be made available on Ancestry.co.uk

7 Apr

News from the British Postal Museum and Archive that Post Office appointment books from 1831 to 1960 are to be made available online by Ancestry.co.uk seems to have gone largely unnoticed.

Details on the BPMA website are brief, with no mention as to when they will be available or exactly what it includes, but presumably they are talking about archive class POST 58.

This will be an interesting data-set for both family and local historians, and with the Post Office being such a large employer, I am sure most people will be able to find relations in these records. I can think of at least one relation of mine that should be mentioned (my great grandfather’s second wife’s second husband), but I am sure there will be others.
