Addressing History update

The Addressing History project, which will link data from several Edinburgh based street directories to contemporary maps, has posted an update on the work on their blog. It is a tad technical, but you'll get the point of how useful it will be, with exampes of how all the bakers in the city can be researched with a search, or all those sharing a similar surname.

The post is at http://addressinghistory.blogs.edina.ac.uk/2010/07/14/software-developments/ - looks like it is shaping up to be a great project.
