I'm interested to know whether there are any other professional (or indeed amateur) historical researchers who regularly make use of manuscript archives, or manuscript collections within other archives or libraries?
My reason for this is that I have a few questions that I think would be ideally suited to a crowd-sourced history site, but which would actually be really difficult to structure in a way that would be considered "a good fit" with the History:SE question guidelines.
[In particular, the questions would involve asking about sources - albeit primary sources, but I'm not sure that everyone here makes a distinction (and, to be fair, the guidance pages in the Help Centre aren't exactly clear on that point either). Furthermore, they would probably generate "long-tail" answers which are also frowned upon here.]
Before I spend a lot of time trying to word the questions in a way that might be OK for the SE format, I figure it's worth asking if there is actually a target audience that might be able to answer them. :)
