We have now been going 5 years and we have amassed a comprehensive and detailed databank of historical information on Gringley history right up to the present. This information is now stored in two ways - a physical archive where we have documents or albums or even 3D objects under lock and key, and then an electronic databank of everything we have been given or have borrowed for scanning. This electronic databank is greater in reach and depth, and it is comprehensive, integrated and index tagged. 

While this electronic databank is accessible to researchers or casual browsers of every type, it is now too vast and detailed to be published directly on this History Club website. Instead links are available within the NOTEBOOKS page. 

Our unit of storage is a Note, which might contain only one paragraph, but might also contain an album of dozens of separate photos or press clippings. We now have 870 Notes of which 200 are picture based Notes. These picture-based Notes contain about 700 individual pictures altogether, while the remaining document based Notes contain over 2000 individual pages.

Every Note is index tagged for searching purposes within an application called Evernote, which runs freely on most computer platforms, and which anybody can use for nothing! Notes are grouped into about 20 Notebooks based upon their origin and format. A Note can only appear in one Notebook, but a Notebook can contain many Notes. 

Most Notebooks are available to ALL categories of researchers.

Foremost among the exceptions are the two Notebooks:  "Awaiting Classification" and "Privilege". The former is self explanatory and contains any Notes still being worked on for editing or tagging. The "Privilege" Notebook contains either sensitive or copyright material that it is not appropriate to make freely available. The 19th Century Census entries for Gringley, the School Register, fully scanned copies of published books reside in here. Two members of the Club committee must pre-authorise release of this material. 

Of the remaining 18 Notebooks, 13 are accessible to any casual researcher by down-loading directly from this website. 5 other Notebooks are only fully available to paid-up Club members (cost is only £10 p.a.) and access is unlimited.

For the full list of Notebooks and their permissions including the Notebooks Table of contents please go to NOTEBOOKS directly from here.
