U.K. and U.S. Directories, 1680-1830

This database was originally published under the name of Biography Database, 1680-1830 by Avero Publications , but Ancestry.com has renamed it online to help researchers better understand what it contains. The database is actually a massive collection of U.K. and U.S. biographical records, directories, and lists from the following sources:

* National, town, and trade directories of the United Kingdom and United States
* All known book subscription lists
* All birth, marriage, death, promotions, and bankruptcies from a number of regular journals, including the Gentleman’s Magazine from its inception in 1731 to 1870
* All extant society membership lists from the period
* A number of miscellaneous additional biographical sources contributed by individual academics, who consulted for the project.
