Some notes about the Indexes

A professionally prepared index to all issues of the Bourne Society Bulletin, and all Local History Records as far as volume 45 was compiled by T.D.K. Pearce in 2006 and occupied 344 pages in A5 format. This work was commissioned by the Society and was printed in 2006. A reasonable number of copies remain available, price £6.50 plus £1.50 post and packing. Because this Index is still effectively ‘in print’, the above download is in secure format so that you will not be able to print or copy sections of the Index but you may search for names and places using Adobe Reader.

Index-coverAfter a 12-year delay, during which more than 3000 pages of Local History Records had accumulated without an index, the second volume, compiled by Raymond Howgego, was produced. The intention is to regularly update the online version of this index as each new volume of LHR comes along. A limited number of printed copies will probably be produced for circulation to libraries, museums, etc., and print-on-demand copies will be available at a cost of £2.50. However, no restriction has been placed on the above download, thereby allowing complete copies to be printed for personal use.

In addition to the above, three early staple-bound indexes, compiled by Ken Newbury, were printed in 1971, 1980, and 1990, titled Index, Index II and Index III. These covered the years 1956-71, 1972-80, and 1981-90 consecutively. Although useful in their time, and now rather scarce, they have been entirely superseded by Pearce’s index of 2006.
