New database: Medieval Family Life

Just added to the Columbia Libraries roster of medieval resources, Medieval Family Life contains scanned images of 15th- and 16th-century correspondence along with full transcriptions.  The papers of the Paston, Cely, Plumpton, Stonor and Armbrugh families are accompanied by additional resources such as concurrent historical and family chronologies, an interactive map, family trees, and many more.

The letters are useful for, among other disciplines, social, political, and economic history, women’s studies, and as aides for late-medieval palaeography training.
