A guide to the categories linked in the top menu bar.
Home – the front page, with all the blog posts.
About – About me, about the site, about copyright, and acknowledgements to those who have helped the project and provided resources and inspiration.
Links – Links to miscellaneous blogs, sources, national legislative archives and so forth.
Collections – Bibliographies of digitized collected volumes of statutes, sorted by country. Currently there are sections for Ireland (to 1800), Scotland, India, Ceylon, Jamaica and Barbados. Although this project is focussed on English and British legislation, it is deeply involved with imperial law, hence the foreign collections here. But this is not a promise to start OCRing them.
Search – a Google powered ‘Custom Search Engine’ that searches pre-1935 legislation on both the offical UK legislation site, the 3 volumes of Statutes of the Realm on British History Online, and the statutes collected in the section described below. As yet, it does not search the OCRed collections of statutes. This is both an experiment and an interim measure.
Statutes – English and British statutes collected from around the internet, including those I have transcribed for my work on debt. These are not the result of OCRing the collections of statutes, but are included in the search function described above.
For the OCRed texts, see the repository on Github. In due course these will find a home on this site, although probably not using WordPress.
