The website has recently celebrated its first birthday of public availability.
Most importantly, we have been successful in ensuring that the website features highly in the results returned by search engines. In Google searches for both “Henley” +“Archaeology” and “Henley” +“History” the website is in second position, with several entries in the top 10. Also, the Henley College have at last corrected the link to our website and we have reciprocal links from Groups with similar objectives such as the Henley Society.
Most importantly the content continues to grow:
- The lecture programme is available to end 2014. Details are added when available and usually each lecture is reviewed.
- Visits and events are advertised and usually reviewed.
- Newsletters are available from No. 123 (March 2012).
- All Journal contents are included and No 127 (June 2013) is available complete and in colour.
- Ten articles, including eight Building Research artcles by Ruth Gibson are available.
- Minutes of Committee meetings are available to registered members only.
After one year it is appropriate that we should review both the content and the style of the website. Members’ views and suggestions for additional content will be much appreciated.
Work continues on other websites. The Probate Group have completed three quarters of their objective, having transcribed over 300 wills and 35 bonds. The census website www.henleycensus.info is already available to search by names and street. Work is well advanced on including search by occupation and expected to be available by September.
