On 2 April 2005 I sent Dave Newbury my 8000 alphabetical name list of residents in Maiden Newton, Frome Vauchurch, Chilfrome, Cattistock, West Compton, Compton Valence, Wynford Eagle. At the time I was not sure whether I could continue with the project owing to the huge increase in the cost of photocopying the census pages. However, the Dorset History Centre have agreed to continue charging a small amount for copying but only for a short time (unspecified). I have sent Dave two follow up e-mails but I do not know if he even received my original list. I really do need to know whether it is worth while continuing and I would appreciate an answer from someone to tell me what the present position is.
