If we are to believe Marlene's explanation, then I am certain she wouldn't mind my sharing what "Marlene" brings to mind when I see it... My father had a secretary named Marlene...a grossly overweight woman, of limited intelligence. A kind soul, very generous, not physically attractive, and not the brightest bulb in the chandelier...and needing to lose at least 100 pounds...But this isn't a comparison...right Marlene?

None of the libraries (public) around here has the RGTPL

I freely admit to being ignorant about somethings. What is RGTPL?

This is the most entertaining the Windsor threads have been for some days, IMO.  Thank you to all concerned!  :D

Reader's Guide to Peroidic Literature- It is an index of all published magazine article.  Luckily my home town public library has it.  I thought it was standard issue for all libraries.

Unfortunately not, I have yet to see it at both my public library or my school library (which has as many reference materials as my public library ::) ).

I just wanted to say that I purchased Marlene's book along with the companion update last year, having heard so much about it as a "must have".  That is certainly true.  I can only try to imagine the time and effort which went into collecting and choosing the pictures alone.


It sounds a marvellous book. I look forward to acquiring it, budget permitting   :D

Margarita, I just wanted to thank you for including the link about Royals and the past. I just went on and signed up. I love the past, and this is the first group I've found. I'm so excited...

I'm enjoying all your discussions---please go ahead. Sorry for interupting...

Ok, if my library has it. What exactly does it enable a person to do?

OOOH! I didn't realise that Marlene was The Marlene Eilers! I ordered her book and plan to order the companion to it sometime soon. Excellent reading.

thepeerage.com is one of the best out there and even then not very good. I spent all day everyday for four weeks going through that website I found mistakes and areas that I had my own info that they had nothing on.

here's another good site http://pages.prodigy.net/ptheroff/2005_1.html

You don't know the answer! what's wrong with you?!

You can search for all the articles written in a particular period of time. For instance, if you wanted to see everything written about Queen Victoria in 1901, you would look up Queen Victoria and it would show notations for all the articles pertaining to her in that year. They are just notations--you'd have to chase down the magazines cited. There are a lot of volumes depending on how far back you want to search--I think it went back to the 1840s or 1850s but it's been awhile. Many of the magazines cited aren't even in existence anymore.

Thanks GD Ella. This I probably would not use, since I am not a "serious or academic" researcher, just a person who is interested in this topic/era & loves to see pics of this era of royalty, but it is good to know. Thank you

f.y.i.  Not all libraries carry the Readers' Guide to Periodic Literature now that there are internet sources.
