If you enjoy digging deep into data, check out these two websites: London Lives, 1690 to 1800: Crime, Poverty, and Social Policy in the Metropolis and The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London’s Central Criminal Court, 1674 to 1913. Thanks to William I. Turkel for the tip (on Twitter). The first one has 240,000 manuscripts from eight archives; the latter includes 197,745 criminal trial records. About to catch up (but not open source) is Gale Cengage, according to a meeting today at the American Historical Association focus group, “World Scholar: Latin America and the Caribbean.” Their massive 1 million+ pages of digital Latin American resources will be launched in April.
