National Archives at Kew's new microfilm lottery

The National Lottery at Kew (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) is having another clear-out - it has boxes of microfilmed records that it now wishes to dispose of, including the 1901 census for England and Wales, Colonial Office records, Royal Hospital Chelsea: Length of Service Pensions, Admission Books, and much, much more.

From TNA:

This offer opens on Monday 9 June 2014 at 10:00 (British summer time) and closes on Sunday 27 June at 17:00 (British summer time). We will not accept requests before or after these dates.

We will allocate the films by lottery, carrying out a draw using numbered balls, with a separate draw for each batch. We will only accept requests for whole batches.

The full process is outlined at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/936.htm and a full list of films to be disposed of is available at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/surplus-microfilm-for-disposal-by-public-lottery.pdf.

Good luck!
