Bristol Historical Databases

by Dr Spencer Jordan

A new web site is now available for the Bristol Historical Databases Project.

During its four-year life, the Project designed, digitalised and distributed a number of historical documents, including commercial directories, poll books, the complete 1837 Property Survey of Bristol, and Herbert Tout’s 1937 Social Survey of Bristol. Some of these are available for download.
