The project was developed by Derbyshire County Council to recognise the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War in 2014. It focuses on the experience of local Derbyshire people and the impact that the World War had on the county during the First World War and its aftermath.
For more information on the project and to get involved, please have a look at the project blog here: http://derbyshirelives.wordpress.com/ or contact Glynn Wilton, the project manager, at Derbyshire Record Office, New Street, Matlock, DE4 3FE, call him on 01629 539217 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Glynn will help find sources of funding, advice and information most relevant to projects. He can also advise on funding applications, how to create effective exhibitions, how best to deal with historic material and point you in the right direction for the libraries and museums best able to help with specific projects.
