Connected Histories

Connected Histories

I’ve written about this website before, but took another look today as I was finishing off the last pieces of one of my talks that I am giving on the Unlock The Past Cruise next month.

Four new resources have been added to the website.

  • Convict Transportation Register Database
  • John Foxe’s The Acts & Monuments Online
  • 19th century British Pamphlets
  • Archbishopric of York Cause Papers

This site is turning into a real treasure chest of data useful to family and local historians. A simple surname search covers all 22 websites which are linked to Connected Histories. Some of the websites are pay, but others are free and even if your search turns up something from one of the pay sites and you don’t wish to subscribe, a brief description might be most useful in pointing you in the right direction for further research.
