Sources and Methods

A Sources and Methods item was introduced into Local Population Studies in No. 76 (Spring, 2006). This item considers a range of sources and methods commonly used in local population history. These vary in sophistication and complexity, but are intended to be of benefit to the broad LPS readership, and are accompanied by worked examples. Each item is written by an experienced population history practitioner, and will usually address both the possibilities and the pitfalls of the respective sources and methods under discussion. It is intended that over time these short articles will build into an increasingly comprehensive compendium of guidance on the essential sources and methodologies employed in local population history. The articles in this series published to date are reproduced below.
