Georgian Street Map of Winchester, Hampshire

We saw this BBC news story about a very interesting project to publish street maps of Winchester from the Georgian era, and thought this could be of interest to family historians who are looking to trace ancestors in the Hampshire region.

As Jane Austen lived in Winchester toward the end of her life, this project will also be of great interest to ‘Janeites’.

If you are looking to do family history research in the Hampshire area, then you’ll find that the Archive contains 1000s of pages from Hampshire newspapers, from 1750 to 1949.
