Three Uses for the Burney Collection (2)

More now from the Burney collection, and the second of three suggested uses for the database. If you are a family historian or biographer, and you suspect the subject of your research ran into financial trouble, you could check lists of recent bankruptcy cases. Here, for instance, are notices from the Gazetteer and New Daily Advertiser (London), dated 15 June 1772. I picked it out because of the reference to Tideswell, but could just as easily have turned it up by looking for individual names. If you want to use the Burney collection, grab your Derbyshire library card and head to: Tideswell
