Today I want to ask researcher living in the UK to help me. It is not really a question about Congress Poland, but about East Europe.
I am looking for an archive, web page or maybe just a hint, where I can look for my ancestors who lived in Leeds in the 1780/90s. The only thing I know is that my ancestor Thomas Bracegirdle (married to Anne Benbow from Newcastle) was born there in 1794 and that he came with his brother to the Czech Republic in the 1820's and that he had studied engineering in Manchester before. Later on he moved to Brno, where he owned a plant/manufactory.
