Abstract

The AddressingHistory project aims to develop a website that will allow users to place old Edinburgh addresses from historical Post Office Directories on to a map from the same era. The website will offer an engaging way to discover the history of the city through people, professions, addresses and maps. Every address that is added to the map will contribute to the work of local historians, genealogists, academic researchers and members of the general public who are interested in learning how the city and it's people have changed since the late 18th century.
