Finding Queer Lives in Archives; A Toolkit

Finding Queer lives in archives; a toolkit

The ‘Finding Queer Lives in Archives; A Toolkit’ was a living document that collated the outcomes and findings of research within our history group and the overall approach taken within this project. This toolkit aims to provide an introductory resource for those interested or involved in finding queer lives within archival research, specifically through crime and punishment archives, genalogical and newspaper databases. Please do provide us with your feedback and thoughts on this toolkit,
