A review of this CDrom by Angela Petyt:
"This CD contains a Gazetteer of the whole of Great Britain and Ireland, published in 1868. It is certainly the most outstanding and comprehensive gazetteer I have ever consulted. The scanned pages are of high-quality and the CDs are easy to navigate. There is an enormous amount of information about every county, city, town, village and hamlet. Geography, economy, transport, religion, education and social facilities are but a few of the topics covered in each entry. In addition, the appendices feature fascinating information about population statistics, agriculture, occupations, the Poor Law, and an abstract of the 1861 census returns. This gazetteer is an essential work of reference for any historian, and gives a unique insight into mid-Victorian life".
