Bodleian Library periodicals online

Bodleian Library periodicals onlineDid you know that the Bodleian Library in Oxford has put some of it’s vast holding of periodicals online. Amongst the offerings are the “Gentleman’s Magazine” 1731 – 1750 and “Notes & Queries” 1849 – 1869.

Both of these publications have plenty to interest the family historian. The Gentleman’s Magazine has an index for each volume (one volume per year) and Notes & Queries also has a yearly index. I think to get the best out of these publications you need to browse through a volume to see how things are laid out and then dive into some research. A very wide range of subjects are covered in each edition including many announcements of births, marriages & deaths.

Take a look.
