Talk given at the Guild Conference 2013

This talk outlines the changing meaning and boundaries of 'London' over the centuries, and the wide variety of record offices and archives this has generated. It looks at how to locate the places people lived within London using maps and other sources. All the standard genealogical sources (census, parish records, probates, etc.) are available in London and this talk highlights what is special about using these in London.

Finally, consideration is given to some unique resources for London, including records generated by the Corporation of London and the City livery companies and the Middlesex Deeds Registry.
