New Accessions at the Somerset Record Office
July-September 2007

An "accession" is the technical term for a record or group of records deposited at the record office for safekeeping.  Every accession is given its own unique "accession code", so that we can trace exactly when a document came in, its status, the details of who deposited it with us, and which other records, if any, came in with it.
