British Postal Museum & Archive partners with Ancestry
The British Postal Museum & Archive has partnered with Ancestry.co.uk to make available the Post Office Appointment books from 1831 to 1960.
In 1831 the Post Office created centralised employment records by copying the relevant minute numbers, brief details relating to appointment, transfer, dismissal, resignation, retirement or death. Prior to 1831 appointment records were not kept uniformly over the country.
The records will be fully name searchable and when available will be of real value to all those interested in researching their family history.
