Welcome to the Snippets Wiki

Snippets from 19th and early 20th century journals on a range of subjects:

people, dates, places, activities, stories, poetry, ships... Enrichment of today from the past.

Started in January 2013, I apologise that there isn't much here ... but I am working on it ... and you are invited to contribute!

A good place to see what is here is to click on Wiki Content then choose Categories or Surnames.

N.B. The DATE FORMAT is British i.e. 2/8/1842 is 2nd August 1842.

What is this Wiki about ...

It's all about trying to find names (not necessarily people - could be horses or ships!) and linking them with dates, places and activities to create an understanding of what they were doing, when and where.
