Launch of new User Guide on Ethnicity and Migration
We are pleased to launch our new user guide on Ethnicity and Migration (User Guide 24).
In 2004, the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a grant to Tyne and Wear Archives Service to support work focusing on the history, contributions, lives and experiences of ethnically diverse communities in the area. This enabled the service to launch Legacy - a project building bridges towards an improved understanding and representation of diverse communities, groups, organisations and individuals.
This User Guide has been produced as part of Legacy, providing a list of records that reflect Tyne and Wear’s minority ethnic communities. The history of migrant communities is often hidden and information can appear in unlikely sources. We therefore encourage all users to inform a member of staff if they find any information relating to Ethnicity and Migration within the collection.
