Friday Free Stuff: Historic diaries
01 June 2012
Cyndi's List is a giant collection of genealogical resources, including diaries and letters - the Locality Specific, Military, People & Families categories in particular list dozens.
The New Zealand Electronic Text Centre has a whole collection of autobiographies, biographies, journals and correspondence.
And some sites with journals of historic figures include:
- the Nelson Mandela archive
- the Einstein Archival Database (including scientific, non-scientific, and personal writings)
- and - though only freely available in New Zealand until the end of June - all 43,765 pages of Queen Victoria's journals can be searched and browsed online.
