What you will need

  • A computer with internet access
  • Some sort of spreadsheet software - Note that Excel doesn't do dates before 1900!
  • A BellBoard account - to allow you to enter performances. If you are a Ringing World subscriber it can give you access to their library of back issues going back to 2000.

Make a plan

The first thing to do is to create a list of peals. Decide what you are going to do, which set of peals to work on.

For a single tower, that is easy. Look it up on the Felstead web page and save the result. The Felstead database contains only just enough information to get you started but it is the most complete listing.

Your list will be larger if you are doing a branch or district. First establish which towers are included. This will be in an annual report or the Guild/Association web site. Then consider if the boundaries have changed over the years. You could leave this detail for later / someone else. You may want to sort your list by date.

Most non-territorial societies will have their own peal records that can be helpful in putting together a list.
