The Derbyshire Lives Through the First World War project here at the Derbyshire Record Office is coming to a close. But to create a lasting legacy of the wonderful activities that have gone on around the county to commemorate the centenary of the First World War we have created a touring exhibition that over the next two years should be coming to a location close to you and a brand new website. This is now online and although we are still tinkering with it – adding captions to images, including more of your stories and adding specially made short films, we already have a site that includes a timeline, a gallery of images from our collections, information on lots of projects from around the county and a help section for anyone thinking of organising their own project in the future.
Have a look at our new site www.derbyshirelives.uk and let us know what you think. If you’d signed up to our previous Derbyshire Lives Through the First World War blog, please do continue to follow us on our new site. Our own project may be coming to an end but of course the First World War commemorations will continue until Armistice Day 2018 so there will be new projects to mention and lots to talk about.
