I am always fascinated by the material folk left behind in the forms of diaries, journals, notebooks etc and the insight it provides to their lives or the communities they lived in.
This month, I share one of those resources with readers of Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine (February 2020 issue). Booths Poverty Maps of London are a fascinating asset for those researching in the capital, although the notebooks are in many ways telling a one sided story.
You can see a glimpse of some of the article below, which forms part of the magazine’s Master Class series.
The Magazine is available in both paper and digital format – for more information click HERE
