Hello to all Lincolnshire researchers. Lincs is a great county, lots of resources and friendly people; no, it isn't flat! Please feel free to start discussions, leave messages and make this group as helpful and worthwhile as I know it is capable of becoming.
Our logo is the Lincolnshire coat of arms: The wavy bend symbolises the coastline and the many waterways in the county. The ermine bend symbolises Ermine Street, a Roman road that runs through the county. The two fleur-de-lis are taken from the arms of the city of Lincoln. The supporters are the so-called Lincolnshire Yellowbellies, or soldiers of the 10th Regiment of Foot.
