Questions and Mysteries

The insights gained from family history research are reshaping ideas about the way history is explored more generally. 

Here are a few questions you may have tried to answer for yourself:

Who knows most about life as it was in Eynesbury and St Neots in Huntingdonshire in the 1840s and 1850s?

What was life like in Southwark in London in the second half of the 19th century?

What were the duties of an inspector of London post offices in the 1850s and 1860s?

Why did people migrated to Soho in London from elsewhere in Europe in the 19th century?

I think I have asked enough questions for one day.  I am looking forward very much to hearing from you if you have some answers to any of the above questions.
