|John Grenham MAGI FIGRS|
The tender for the project, which will last for about a year, was issued in June and yesterday the well-known genealogist John Grenham MAGI announced on his blog that he is the lucky chap now up to his elbows in these emails and making appropriate amendments to the database.
There are thought to be about 20,000 of these emails to work through. As far as I’m aware, amendments will be updated to the live site on a regular basis but I’m not sure how often that will be.
You can read John's initial observations about the project here.
