While we don’t have the resources to answer specific research questions or provide information supplementary to our holdings, we are happy to answer questions about our content.

If you do have a specific research question, see our recommended resources for ideas about where to look for help or more information. If you are interested in hiring a researcher, the National Archives has a list of independent researchers.

Please feel free to contact us via our email form. We have a small team, but we aim to answer emails within five working days.


N.B. Most of the texts on BHO are either transcriptions of printed volumes or born-digital datasets prepared by external editors. Some of this material is quite old, so information may be out of date. While we are happy to correct any transcription errors that you spot, our policy is not to correct any editorial errors from the original texts since we present the text of the original book verbatim.
