Biographical Research into Former Members

Elections of Fellows and Scholars of Trinity College are recorded in the College Registers. Undergraduates wrote an entry in their own hand in the Admissions Book from 1648: this records place of birth, age, and father.

From the late nineteenth century it includes date of birth and education; from the late twentieth century, details of mother. From 1899 annual photographs of the whole College are available.
From the late nineteenth century, the Archive also contains a number of photographic and written records of college clubs and societies, and these can provide additional information as to a member’s interests.
