Help us transcribe census and street directory documents
The heart of the MyHouseMyStreet system uses material derived from the census and directory records for the city. We already have many volunteers transcribing such documents here at The Regency Town House in Brunswick Square and all are welcome to join our weekly groups that undertake this task. To participate please contact us.
Research your local street history
MyHouseMyStreet volunteers are already researching the history of numerous local streets, particularly those located in the North Laine area.

We provide volunteers with training sessions so that they can learn how to produce street histories and help with our targeted locations (you can also opt to start researching the history of your own street or other location of your choice). To assist this work, we have developed a set of templates for the histories, which helps guide the research effort.
If you are interested in attending one of the training sessions or joining the project as a street researcher, please contact us.
Thank you for your interest.
