Digitizing the Year Books: The Next Step

David J. Seipp, Boston University School of Law, announces that his index and paraphrase of printed Year Book reports is now complete in the sense that all reports in the chronological series from 1268 through 1535, with all Year Book material from 1399 through 1509 printed only in Abridgements, have been indexed and either fully paraphrased or summarized. This project is sponsored by the Ames Foundation, and will continue by reconstructing missing Year Books of 31 to 37 Edward III from the Abridgements. The database as now updated remains freely searchable [here]."
