NOTES AND QUERIES FOR SOMERSET AND DORSET (SDNQ) has been published in unbroken sequence since 1888. During that time it has recorded evidence on local history, archaeology, architecture, antiquities, genealogy, heraldry, literature, dialect, family history, customs and folklore of the two counties. This provides material of permanent value to all those interested in the west of England, and in these topics generally. The journal is especially useful to the growing number of people actively interested in local and family history. Among the many subscribers are universities, colleges, libraries, schools, and individuals in many parts of the world. Two numbers are issued annually in March and September. The annual subscription is £8 including postage.
