        I have been researching my family, who were residents of Pocklington for several generations. Travel is difficult, it is a long way away for me and online sources for the area are limited. It would be a valuable addition to these if the Howdenshire Chronicle could be digitised.

        My wife and I have used the Howdenshire Chronicle (Treasure House) for several years in our research for books on Pocklington in the 19th and 20th centuries. It has been absolutely invaluable to us. However, its use for us is limited owing to the distance we have to travel to Beverley as well as creating unwanted carbon!

        Trying to get more info on an ancestor who was an Excise Officer in Pocklington in the 1820/1830s. This newspaper does not appear in Findmypast records and that is a great pity.

        I have found this source absolutely invaluable in research of everykind...family history...local history ..The things I have found out have been amazing..I'm sure I could find out much more if the howden shire chronicle were put in newspaper archive especially researching house history and a snapshot of the area in any era of time.
        I'm convinced others would get as much use out of this source as i have in their own homes without having to make long trips to a not so local archive. I can't be the only one who loathes microfilm?
        Constantly getting mislaid lost or damaged.
