London in the long 18th century online: London Lives

It’s the Old Bailey archive all over again: London Lives, 1690-1800. Keyword search page.

There are more than 200,000 pages of manuscript material from parish, criminal justice and hospital records, transcribed and marked up for searching.

Maritime Compass points out the maritime applications (and BTW check out their blogroll).

So. WHEN will someone do the same with the VOC archives? (Hint: sometime after the Infernal Snowsuit and Ski Gear Company’s IPO).
