London Lives FREE OnLine Archive
- G'morning Group.....
The below article gleaned for you..... sounds worth researching!
From Eastman's Online Newsletter, dated 29 Jun 2010
London Lives is a brand-new, free online archive containing 240,000
manuscripts and printed pages, published between 1690 and 1800. The new web
site provides a valuable insight into the lives of millions of ordinary
people during those years. The online documents include workhouse records,
criminal registers, coroners' reports, court orders and papers governing the
dispensation of poor relief.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, and produced by the
universities of Sheffield and Hertfordshire, the site allows both amateur
and professional historians to search the archives for individuals.
Although anyone can search London Lives, registration is required.
Registration allows you to use a personal workspace to link documents
together and create biographies of eighteenth-century Londoners. It also
gives you access to advanced search facilities and the project wiki (coming
soon), where you can write and share biographies. Registration is free.
London Lives is available now at http://www.londonlives.org/
