User Feedback

“I just wanted to email and let you know that the [Tithe Map Digital Resource] is a fantastic idea. I am currently researching the history and locations of old cinemas in Leeds so being able to view the present day and the old maps alongside each other has been brilliant for finding these. It has been so useful and has probably halved the amount of searching time (and money) I would have spent going back and forth to the library to find old cinema locations.
I really hope Tracks in Time continues to be a success. I think the site would be so useful for people researching a whole range of topics.”
[Mr S. Audus, Leeds]


“I  am certain that Tracks in Time will give people a sense of their heritage, which I believe is vitally important. The downside is that I can see myself spending far too much time on my computer in future and neglecting other things!”
[Councillor A. Castle, Leeds City Council]


“This kind of project engages people of all ages and helps promote community cohesion and understanding between generations. It has been a good example of joint working and will be something that we build on in the future to encourage people to access IT and use libraries.”
[Ms A. Day, Neighbourhood Renewal Manager, Leeds Library & Information Service]


"I've had a play with the website and I think it's magnificent - and quick! I'm sure it will be really useful for researchers and anyone interested in maps and tithes. It's also very attractive which makes it all the more irresistible."
[Ms J. Stockley, Apportionment Transcriber, Leeds]


“The online resource is easy to navigate and understand and is extremely accessible to researchers. I found the training session informative and the resource will prove valuable when dealing with research enquiries and [conducting] my own family history research.”
[Mr J. Kerry, Local & Family History Librarian, Leeds - Joel Kerry @ Blogger]


“Users can search for people and get these selected on the map - it’s a great resource. It’s particularly good for [looking at the] industrial revolution, which was strong in the north of England where a lot of industry was [developing]. Overall, it’s a plus to the city and a marvellous resource of the past for the future.”
[Mr T. Waters, Freelance Geospatial Developer / Consultant - Tim Waters @ Thinkwhere]


“I think it’s a really cool resource, especially since it’s available online for anyone to use. I’ve been playing around with maps of Aberford and Boston Spa and it’s cool to see how the villages have changed over the last 100 years.”
[Ms Z. Piper, SEO / Adwords Expert, Leeds - Zoe Piper @ Piggynap]


“I think this is a superb resource. Well done to all concerned!”
[Mr S. Burt, Museum Director, Royal Armouries, Leeds]


“It is a wonderful resource. 100 per cent thanks to the team involved!”
[Mr Sharpe, Canada]


From Secret Leeds:
“What a cracking site.”
[Simon M]


“I’m salivating. I didn’t get to bed until 4.30 last night, fantastic site. It’s right up there with the best of ‘em.”


“Now I’ve found the twin maps / aerial view feature, I’ll be on this site for months! Thanks, Peter. Your site is a fantastic resource and I for one will be using it very often. Thanks again!”
