Is there a word for someone who is suffering from Archive fatigue?


Loyal Member
All this summer I have been traipsing from Archive to Archive following this one family. I have been to Sheffield Archives 4 times, Rotherham twice, Doncaster once and Wakefield once and still haven't got a lot of information because I've found some is in a small archive that opens once a week in Bradfield, other information is in 2 private archives, some is in Barnsley and some in Leeds plus a whole lot in Nottingham. I wish someone would do a TV programme about me and give me transport to all these archives at least. Maybe they didn't give up Michael Parkinson because he was boring. Maybe they just got tired going round and round the archives.
