Analysing a Source and Using Resources - 'Correspondence' by Peter Wills
Buckie District Family Connections has provided many resources to aid your family search, all locally focused, but how do we use them? Here we provide an example of their use to show how one letter can be picked apart and analysed using the links on Buckie District Family Connections, to provide far more information and help place the source into context. A transcription of a letter sent by Messers Dendy and Morphett of London, agents to the trustees of Dr Alexander Gray's hospital in Elgin in 1814, is provided below then analysed providing links to suitable sources. The letter is held by in the Moray Council Archives (UG71 correspondence of Dr Gray's Hospital).
