This wonderful offering from the Universities of Sheffield & Herefordshire is a great asset from those with London ancestors and let’s face it most of us are going to have had people go through London at one time or another even if they didn’t stay for very long.
The introduction to the website states….
London Lives makes available, in a fully digitised and searchable form, a wide range of primary sources about eighteenth-century London, with a particular focus on plebeian Londoners. This resource includes over 240,000 manuscript and printed pages from eight London archives and is supplemented by fifteen datasets created by other projects. It provides access to historical records containing over 3.35 million name instances. Facilities are provided to allow users to link together records relating to the same individual, and to compile biographies of the best documented individuals.
