Research Links

Here are some shortcuts to websites which are useful for the researcher.

A good site run by the Institute of Historical Research – (you may have to pay for premium content).  http://www.british-history.ac.uk/

If you researching London people and events this is a useful website although much of their data has yet to be digitised. https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/london-metropolitan-archives/Pages/search.aspx

The Society of Genealogists has a reasonable catalogue which you can search here. Full access is reserved for members. http://www.sog.org.uk/search-records

The Online Historical Population Reports (OHPR) collection provides online access to the complete Population Census reports for Britain and Ireland from 1801 to 1937. http://www.histpop.org/ohpr/servlet/Show?page=Home

Hampshire Library Services will retrieve a reference book for you from across their nationwide network. They will then make it available at the New Milton branch or whichever branch you request. You will need your library membership number and there is sometimes a charge for the retrieval service. http://www3.hants.gov.uk/library.htm

The Hampshire Record Office is always worth a visit but search their catalogue before you travel. https://calm.hants.gov.uk/advanced.aspx?src=CalmView.Catalog

The British Newspaper Archive is a subscription site https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/

The Clergy of the Church of England database is very useful. https://theclergydatabase.org.uk/jsp/search/index.jsp
