Historical-biographical publications were popular in the late Victorian, Edwardian period and comprised of a regional history together with biographies of notable citizens, whose contribution made the region successful.
As such, these publications can prove useful to historians looking for contemporary records. The downside is of course, that the vast majority of people are not listed, but if your ancestors held even a minor civic or government post such as a councillor or town clerk, these publications are worth following up. Apart from their name, you can expect to find details of their origins and achievements that haven rise to their inclusion in the publication.
Biographical dictionaries are privately published and occur across the globe representing regions and large towns. They include material of a nature often found in almanacs. As such they are useful and may provide that essential piece of background information about an individual that opens up new lines of research.
