Today’s the Day

I’m currently waiting for my husband to do his ‘magic’ in the world of YouTube before I can post my next official blog so instead because I’m already getting ‘blog fever’ I would like to give you all my first extract from the Mansfield & North Notts Advertiser.

The above was the name of the local paper in Mansfield for many years and is now known as the Chad.  As with many local papers it continues to record the happy and sad events in local lives – for the family historian it provides a rich source of information.

I would have liked to have done a extract relating to the ‘current’ week but because of ‘husband’ issues the week that is featured today is the 20 November 1925.

Enough of my waffling here goes:-
