Thank you so much to you both, I greatly appreciate the help! Has anyone been successful in finding the magnate records for their families? Would you have any recommendations on the types of records to look for and what those records might contain? I.e. do they list out all of the individuals (females included?) that lived/worked on their estates or is it typically just the name of the leaseholder that's included? It seems like it's quite a bit of work to get to the records themselves (sounds like one needs to either travel to the archive or hire a researcher) so I'm just wondering if the information included in those records would be worth the work.
