    As a member – who lives in Somerset but am still researching my Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire ancestors.

    Is it possible that someone could send me a copy of these magazines via the internet.?

    I am researching BARBER family at moment as have discovered relationships with my own family.

    Thanks in anticipation.

      East Midlands History and Heritage is not an NLHA magazine but it is something of a ’sister’ publication to The Nottinghamshire Historian. It is sponsored by a group of local universities in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland; and by NLHA and The Thoroton Society here in Nottinghamshire. I am a member of the management panel. It was envisaged as a regional magazine catering for local history societies, schools and colleges, heritage practitioners and history professionals across the East Midlands. We currently distribute 7500 copies across the region twice a year and they are free. They are generally available through local libraries and in Nottinghamshire I also distribute through local history groups.

      Online copies of the current issue can be viewed/downloaded as PDF from the Home Page of the NLHA website https://www.nlha.org.uk , just go down to the bottom of the page and then click on the orange image of the magazine, it should open in a separate viewer;

      or you can get to it directly from the EMHH website at http://eastmidlandshistory.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/OS1131_EMHH_July_2017_final.pdf

      all 5 issues of the magazine are available to download at http://eastmidlandshistory.org.uk/magazine/

      I wonder if we could be of help, I wrote the article along with my husband. We have been researching Barbers Row for over 10 years now.
