Can you give an hour or two?

Help us produce a spreadsheet of research notes

In September we will have a social history exhibition about a Rugby family called The Eadons and a collection of photographs taken by Chris Eadon just before the First World War. We have some handwritten notes about the collection which we need added to an Excel spread sheet. This will help us to start other research projects on the collection which shows a unique snapshot of family life 1910-1914.

What's involved?

Working remotely from your own computer at home, the project will involve creating an Excel spreadsheet and typing details of each photograph, such as date, place and any other comments from handwritten notes. You will also be able to cross-reference the notes with a copy of each of the photographs.

Why get involved?

You will get the chance to study this wonderful collection of over 300 photographs and create a spreadsheet which will help us to do further research on the collection in the near future.

How to get involved?

Accept the challenge and email catherine.shanahan@rugby.gov.uk for more information.
