Just wondering if anyone knows what kind of sources might be out there.
My children are curious about the history of the house we're moving to and they want to know if evacuees stayed there in the war. We know from neighbours that in the 1970s it was lived in by an elderly couple who had lived there for decades, and would have had lots of space.
We know the town took in evacuees (and a school was evacuated to the local stately home). Are there any places I could look for documents that might tell us?
