Apologies that this month's Newsletter is later than usual; it's also rather brief, the reason being a simple one - there isn't much news! As often in the summer months, you tell us that the attractions of the garden and the great outdoors make struggling with illegible handwriting and imperfect images less exciting than usual by comparison. Graham has told us of another distraction, too - he's been celebrating his Golden Wedding. Many congratulations to the happy couple! In any case, transcription, checking and validation are all proceeding, even if the pace has slowed. The updating of the central FreeCEN database also now seems to be back on track as you can see from the figures below.
Enjoy the sunshine, and we'll see what next month brings!
Best wishes to you all,
Simon and Chris

A Puzzle for the Postman
...so where do you think Enn is in Sussex?
After some cross-checking and head-scratching we finally worked out the Enumerator was talking about Heene.
