Access to Archives (A2A)

A virtual national archives network catalogue for England

Ramsdale & Ramsdell Entries

Access to Archives (A2A) is a realisation for England of the scheme for a United Kingdom archive network. A2A aims to create a virtual national archives catalogue, bringing together a critical mass of information about the rich national archival heritage and making that information available globally from one source via the World Wide Web. The historical records to be covered by A2A are of national, regional and local importance and date from periods between the twelfth and twentieth centuries. They are held in geographically dispersed archives offices in England, and many have been comparatively under-recognised in the past.

A2A stands alongside sister projects in Scotland, Wales and the higher education sector, which together will constitute an archives network across the UK. The provision of catalogue information from archive bodies of every kind (national, local, specialist, private) across the country but via a single search on a single Web site will open up archives to the whole public, in England, the UK and world wide.

This database contains catalogues of archives submitted to A2A from all over England from these sources.

The database is detailed, covers a variety of archives, and will be regularly updated - but it does not offer total coverage of all English archives. The catalogues it contains have been drawn up over time: some of them are very full, some are more summary. It is planned to include new catalogues for archives which are currently difficult to access.

The archives this database will describe date from the 12th to the 20th centuries and cover a wide range of subjects. They are useful for family history, local history and school, higher education and further education projects. Anyone with an interest in the past will find them worth a look.

There are currently no entries for the surnames Ramsdal, Ramsdaille, Ramsdill and Ramsdil.
