After many years of research the manuscript for "A History of Rawdon" went to
the printers in 2000. Four hundred copies were printed
and these were sold out within a few months. Whilst there still remains interest in the book, there is probably insufficient
interest to warrant a production run of hundreds of copies (which you need to end up with a
realistic selling price). The
original manuscript has remained on my various computers for the last 10 years and it occurred to me as a website developer
rather than deny the many people interested in their ancestry the chance
to learn more about Rawdon, Leeds, Yorkshire that it would be an interesting project to turn the text into a website.
