Abstract

the ODNB, an obvious choice, except that probably in any representative list, it might have one of twenty names (I speak from the experience of my twenty-year project to identify Sterne's subscribers), and for members of Parliament, Pamela Judd's Members of Parliament (Yale, 1955). Setting aside that the author is Gerrit Pamele Judd, not Pamela, one suspects that Namier and Brooke might be the more valuable source for information concerning subscribers. Or, in terms of Web sites, rather than the limited Collins peerage site, one might look at thepeerage.com, which combines Collins with all the other peerage sources available. More disturbing, Burney's newspapers on line, ECCO, London Lives, are omitted from his list of useful Web sites--and probably a dozen more that trained researchers would immediately think of as useful. Above all, to simplify the dated advice here--and advice that will always be dated, reference works coming on line faster than we can write about them--if one wants identifications, one begins with Google and goes on from there.
