Announcing a new mailing list -
UK-NEWSPAPER-EXTRACTS-L
The purpose of this list is to make available to genealogists worldwide any
UK newspaper extracts from old newspapers for any region of the UK that
would be of interest or of value to genealogy research.
Old newspapers contain much of interest to the genealogist - Births, Marriages and deaths,
inquests, court cases and assizes, trade advertisements, bankrupts, snippets of local interest
and give us an accurate picture of the lives of our ancestors, adding flesh to their bones in a
way that no other genealogy resource can.

BBC Archives to be placed Online

The BBC has announced it will place all of its radio and broadcast archives on the
Internet. That includes about 80 years' worth of radio and television information.
Best of all, the archives will be available free of charge.

This will be a monumental effort. Eighty years of archival material will fill gigabytes
of disk space. Of course, as a public institution, the BBC does not have the profit
issues of other media companies. Nonetheless, a lot of money needs to be spent
in order to make this information available online.

Greg Dyke, director general of the BBC, clearly believes content should be open
to anyone who wants it. "In particular, it will be about how public money can be
combined with new digital technologies to transform everyone’s lives."

English Origins News
 1. Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills Index 1750-1800
Dear Listers,
Origins.net (www.origins.net), in association with the Society of
Genealogists are pleased to announce that the PCC Wills Index is now
available for searching on English Origins (www.englishorigins.com)
About the Index data
 Wills have been proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC) since
1383 and are now preserved in the Public Record Office, London. The index created by the
Society of Genealogists and now available on English
Origins covers wills proved in the period 1750 to 1800 (inclusive).
Each index record has the Forename and Surname of the testator, the Place
(usually the English county) where they resided, and the Month and Year
when probate was granted.
Where the place of residence was not England, the country may be given
(most commonly Scotland or Ireland), or 'Foreign Parts' - which may be any
place outside the British Isles.
This index contains 208,000 entries created from the typewritten index,
includes a hard copy service allowing users to order extracts online.
For more information about the data contained in this index, please go to:

ENG Gretna Green Marriage Index On-Line at
http://www.achievements.co.uk
Family histories abound with stories of elopements.
Often the destination of couples who wished to marry
without parental consent was Gretna Green, just over
the border with Scotland in "debatable land". After
1753, when English law forbad irregular marriages, a
number of people who objected to marrying in a church
wed in border centres where the couple's own consent
to marriage before witnesses was legal under Scottish
Law. Gretna is the most famous of these.  Marriages
were conducted by self appointed ministers at the
border Toll booths along the few roads into Scotland.
The "priests", as they called themselves, often had
other jobs giving rise to the stories of being married
over an anvil by the village Blacksmith. Held at The
Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies
(www.ihgs.ac.uk) the index covers entries between 1795
and 1895, with a few earlier references. In all over
4500 entries are recorded for those lost marriages.
Ask yourself: "Did my great-great-great grandmother
elope to Gretna?"

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers.htm#Page

Have you been frustrated searching the IGI for your relatives when you have
only the surname but got tired of figuring out batch numbers and typing them
into the LDS search screen (since you can't do a last name search unless you
know a batch number)?
Hugh has and he I decided to do something about it. Hugh made an
exhaustive search of the likely ranges of batch numbers for the British
Isles and created a database of those numbers and the source records that
they apply to. He has searched all the possible numbers in the ranges shown
on his website. For each batch he extracted the church or chapel (if
specified), town, county and country names of the first record that appears
when it is called up in his browser. He organised them by country and
county and created a website. A very powerful feature that he has included
is a hotlink from each batch number to the actual search engine provided at
http://www.familysearch.org, including the ability to enter the surname you
are looking for. This makes it very easy to search all the batches for a
particular geographic location using just the last name you are searching
for - something that is not possible directly from the LDS site without
doing a lot of typing. It also connects towns that are listed in more than
one county in the IGI which can sometimes be a problem causing you to lose a
relative because you are looking across a county border!!

Registers of Servants Sent to Foreign Plantations This

indentured servants contracts from the London, Middlesex, and Bristol
Registers. The contracts indicate not only the servant's name and length of
indenture, but also the name of the servant's parents and owner, their home
province and city, occupation, destination, and ship of embarkation. These
records provide a detailed composition of indentured servants in the 17th
century Atlantic World. Bristol Registers The Bristol Registers records all
indentured servants who left from the port of Bristol, England. Servants
listed their place of origin as towns and provinces all over England, as
well as many foreign countries such as Ireland and France. They were headed
to many different places in the New World, including Virginia, Barbados,
and the Caribbean islands. Lengths of indenture varied from 3 to 7 years,
with the average length for females being 4.3 years, and for males, 4.44 years.
The database contains records for approximately 10,000 indentured servants sent
from Bristol to the New World.

Family Research Link
Pay-for-view access to the civil registration indexes of England and Wales.
Geoff Stone, the Society of Genealogists has provided the following information:
"Title Research [the owner of the site] is a fairly long established firm of repute; this is not
a scam but a genuine project.  The particular company has been using the digitised images
of BMD index data for several years which it converted at its own expense.  They have now
realised that the data in this form (after some convincing from others)
is potentially of commercial interest.  Of course we all realise that as the Free-BMD grows
in size then that site will probably win out, but in the short term who can blame Title
Research for taking the opportunity of sharing a valuable asset in the mean time.

"The Family Record Centre ['FRC'] Consultative Group has a dozen or so members
who represent users of the FRC, plus of course FRC, GRO ['General Register Office']
and PRO ['Public Record Office'] representatives.  The group discusses operational issues
from a user point of view.  There are representatives from three commercial
companies, the SoG, GOONS ['Guild of One-Name Studies'], FFHS ['Federation of
Family History Societies'], IHGS ['Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies'],
AGRA ['Association of Genealogists and Record Agents'] and independent researchers
forming the user group.  Of course in fact the commercial companies are the largest
single users of the centre and facilities, hence the fact that it was worth while one of
them digitising the indexes.
"I expect that the counter or phone staff at Stockport [i.e., at the GRO] do not know about
the new site since it has not yet been launched.
However, the PRO management are well aware of the site. I can't comment at the moment
regarding records less than 100 years old, but I will update this list when I am in a position
to do so.
"Somebody else has pointed out that you are not obliged to use the site, but there will be
many who are not able to go to the FRC and don't have easy access to the microfilm and
will welcome the facilities offered.
This rather depends on the options offered by the system which we will not know for another
few weeks.

"I should also add - for the avoidance of doubt - that the SoG have no direct connection
with the site, though we are supportive in principle of anybody who makes genealogical
data available over the Internet."

http://www.curiousfox.com/ 
This is an unusual website in many respects for family historians. Certainly a different
concept. Basically entries are arranged geographically, so you can see
people searching for families in an area you are interested in. This does fall down a little
when people select a whole county and you select a particular village or town. It is also
very much in its infancy, with few entries on the site.  It also works on a double tear
system for 'free' and 'paying' members which I dislike a little. Although it must be said
the fee is very low at the moment. The site requires a little thought to work it out in the
first place, and is not the easiest to navigate and work your way around, but a little patience
will pay off as once you have worked out the system it will be interesting. You will need to
pay really as you will get little for nothing!  As far as I am concerned the
jury is out as to whether family historians will like the geographic breakdown or prefer
the older and more familiar name breakdown.

Interesting stuff about prices and incomes in the 1860s at http://www.geocities.com/RodeoDrive/7503/greatbritainmoney.html .

According to http://www.moneyextra.com/glossary/gl00278.htm inflation between
1998 and 2003 was about 12.5 per cent, which would bring the index up to
592 x 1.125 = 666.
So from 1886 to 1998 prices rose 666/9.4 = 71 times.
So £418.93 in 1886 would buy the same as £418.93 x 71 = about £30,000 in 2003.

ONS Names Index
THIS DATABASE is an extract of an Office of National Statistics database, and
contains a list of surnames in use in England, Wales and the Isle of Mann in
September 2002. The list contains almost 270,000 surnames, shared by
54.4 million people. The entire database contains over a million surnames,
shared by 55.9 million people, but names shared by fewer that five people
have been excluded from this list. The database was established in 1998,
and births are continually added, but the 1.5 million deaths between 1998
and 2002 have not been weeded from the system. The database is also said
to include a level of duplicate entries and misspelt surnames, as well as people
currently living abroad and temporary visitors to England and Wales. However,
experience suggests that multiplying the result for your surname by 0.93 will
give a good idea of the living population for your surname, and multiplying by
3.5 will give the population since the start of parish registers in the 16th century.

Second Edition of British Isles Vital Records Index

Update adds 7.3 million names to popular research tool

Millions more birth, christening and marriage records from selected parishes in the
British Isles, some dating back more than 450 years, are being made available to
the public on compact disc by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
the world's foremost authority on genealogy.

The British Isles Vital Records Index (Second Edition) updates and includes
the previously released British Isles Vital Records Index Resource File
(published in 1998). The second edition adds approximately 7.3 million names
to the index for a total of 12.3 million. There are approximately 10.4 million birth
and christening records and 1.9 million marriage records. Spanning an approximate
time period from 1530 to 1906, this new set of 16 compact discs contains information
on deceased people in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.

"Nearly half of American families can trace part of their lineage to the British Isles,"
said Elder D. Todd Christofferson, executive director of the Family and Church
History Department. "Our repository of records is the most comprehensive source
available to help these families trace their roots to their forebears in 16th- to
20th- century England. These CDs may save families hundreds of hours of time
and painstaking research," Christofferson said. "The process is as simple as
typing in a name."

Information in the British Isles Vital Records Index (Second Edition) includes the
name of the deceased individual and of the spouse or parents. Also included, when
available, are the date and place where the birth, christening or marriage was registered.
Reference information allows users to locate the original record on a microfilm in the
Family History Library collection.

The update includes some records from all counties in England, Ireland, Scotland
and Wales. Some records from the Isle of Man are also included. The time span,
content and availability of the records vary greatly from parish to parish within each
county. It is not a complete index; some counties are more heavily represented than
others. A complete breakdown of records by county is listed at www.familysearch.org.

The CD set also includes the most recent version of the Family History Resource File
Viewer program. Other features include a parent search, book marking, print
options and GEDCOM export.

:                 http://www.british-genealogy.com
:
:               A NEW GENEALOGY WEB SITE
:                                 *AND*
:        NEW BRITISH GENEALOGY MAILING LISTS
:
: British-Genealogy.com is dedicated to assisting people with their
: British family history research.
:
: Not just to find ancestors and build a family tree, but to put meat on
: the bones with information about where they lived, how they lived their
: lives, information about their occupations, and what influenced their
: thinking and decision making.
:
: Real family history - not just collecting names and dates
:
: Our aim is to give you guidance, pointers towards carrying out good
: quality, sound research, and help on how to find the relevant sources of
: information that will help you in your quest.
:
: To begin with, we are giving you one of the most valuable resources
: available on the internet - help from each other and from the experts.
: These are the genealogy mailing lists, which are discussion forums on
: various topics, and geographical areas. When you have a question then
: this is the first place to ask for help.
:
: This is totally free.
:
: NEW mailing lists have been set up in a clear, logical, easy to use and
: easy to find system, one for each county in Britain, together with some
: more general top and specific topic mailing lists. They are open and
: running now at http://www.british-genealogy.com
:
: Once you subscribe to one of the British-Genealogy mailing lists, you
: are provided with your own page where you can set up your own
: preferences for how you receive the messages, subscribe to different
: mailing lists, turn off the mail when you go on holiday, or remove
: yourself from a mailing list. You are in total control, even if you
: change your email address.
:
: So.... go now, and look at http://www.british-genealogy.com
:
: It is a great new project.... and different!
:
: ** There is no daily newsletter, junk mail, or similar from British
: Genealogy.com. There isn't even a master list kept of all email
: addresses.
:
: ** The British-Genealogy web site will be totally free. (No pay to view
: subscriptions). I don't have any problem with pay to own, for example a
: certificate, book, CD or copy of a parish register, but I do not think
: that it is right to have to pay to locate an ancestor. I have always
: stood by this principle, and hence my close contacts with FreeBMD,
: FreeCEN and FreeREG.
:
: ** The lists are easy to locate, and there is *only* one list for a
: county instead of several confusingly named ones. The new lists are in a
: very uniform and logical format, with meaningful list names, and the
: facility to have sub divisions of a county where necessary if there are
: distinct cultural areas. But we won't be having any "pseudo" county
: lists (modern counties) or regional lists that cover more than one
: county. Nor will we be having any list duplication.
:
: ** The whole thing is run on a different type of mailing list software
: to what people normally know. It allows each user to control how they
: configure their own list subscriptions with a login to their *own*
: configuration page, and it has some pretty neat features too, such as
: suspend mail whilst on vacation, or simply switch between list and
: digest mode.
:
: ** Archives are brilliantly searchable. A person can search them *and*
: sort them by poster name, thread, or date, or subject line. They can be
: made accessible to subscribers only, or to anybody, (depending on how
: the list admin sets it up).
:
: So.... go now, and look at http://www.british-genealogy.com
: and join any of the British-Genealogy discussion mailing lists - to help
: you with your research, and to have the opportunity to help others.

The "TIMES" to-day reports that the first phase of Gazettes-Online will be
aunched this month.
The Stationery Office is working to place the London Gazette, the
Edinburgh Gazette, and the Belfast Gazette online. These are official
publications, "Published by Authority" which list all sorts of Official
notices, including awards of medals and decorations, appointments,
obituaries, bankruptcy notices etc, etc, dating back to1665.
The first release covers the two world wars and 20th Century honours and
awards. The next phase will include the rest of the 20th Century editions.
In total the London Gazette consists of 56,000 editions [two million pages],
and the article in the Times says that the site will have a search facility
so that family historians will be able to check awards of gallantry medals,
promotion of officers, changes of name, or naturalisation of an ancestor
simply by typing in a surname.
The site is www.gazettes-online.co.uk but do not all rush, it might turn
out to be like the 1901 census!!

The May issue of Family History Monthly has an interesting article about
apprenticeship records. It says there are 3 main sources, but they are
incomplete, and your best chance of finding an apprentice ancestor would
be if he was apprenticed in London.

The Society of Genealogists have indexed the registers of apprentices from
1710 to 1774. Apprenticeships up to 1850 can be found on www.englishorigins.com .
The original records of these are in the Guildhall Library which you can visit quite
easily in London. It would be worth reading this article as it gives lot of background.
Apprenticeships lasted up to 7 years.

UK LAUNCHES NATIONAL ARCHIVES

Last month, the United Kingdom introduced its National Archives on the World
Wide Web. During the next 12 months, the Public Record Office (PRO) and the
Historical Manuscripts Commission (HMC) will join forces to allow online research
of documents and materials that cover 1,000 years of British history.

Currently, you can search the PRO's catalog, PROCAT, to access databases of
equity pleadings, hospital records and more. If you need some guidance, the
nformation Leaflets section of the site provides an introduction to PROCAT and
links to available records. Those who wish to access British history manuscripts
will find the HMC's ARCHON Directory particularly helpful. Researchers simply
enter the directory for a list of records repositories in the United Kingdom and
throughout the world. Keep checking the site for updates to its resources.

CENSUS

The following info from Stephen Miller of Leeds Indexers:-
Just a quick note to you all.  The 1901 Census GuessTimator will not longer
work due to changes to the PRO Census Site.  I have noted that they have changed
the set up so that although personid numbers remain constant as they were –
the pageid numbers change with each session (using some type of formula). 
So I’m afraid it’s no longer possible to generate the Piece and Folio Numbers.
This will be the same for all other similar type programs.
The data ass supplied by Jeff Knaggs will also be obsolete
I note that the program "1901 England & Wales Census Decoder" at
http://www.censusdecoder.com/ still works although the Piece and Folio pages are
N/A as the pageid is always different.  I compared a saved version from before the
address update and it now changes with every restart of IE.

ENG 1986 DOMESDAY

U.K. National Archives Rescues 1986 Domesday Project
The Domesday book was commissioned in December 1085 by William the
Conqueror, who invaded England in 1066. The first draft was completed in
August 1086 and contained records for 13,418 settlements in the English
counties south of the rivers Ribble and Tees (the border with Scotland at the time).
 The result was 35 volumes that listed the identities of the tenants-in-chief
(landholders) who held their lands directly from the Crown, and of their tenants
and under tenants. For more details about the Domesday Book, look at:
http://www.domesdaybook.co.uk/story.html

Nine hundred years after the Domesday Book was written, the BBC commissioned
a new survey. The map of the United Kingdom was divided into rectangles
measuring 3km by 4km. A school or group of schools took ownership of each of
 these rectangles and collected data about it. Typically this consisted of the type of
land cover, how many amenities existed, a set of photographs, and up to 20 pages
of text. Over 14,000 schools and 2000 other groups were involved in this massive
data collection exercise.

The BBC Domesday project was completed in 1986. The collection of text and
photographs was recorded onto the latest 1986 state-of-the-art storage media: two
2" videodiscs that could be played by using a BBC Master computer connected to
special LV-ROM player. Sadly, not many of those units exist anymore.

The contents of these videodiscs have now been put on DVD, and new programs
have been written so that PCs can access the data. Interestingly, most of the images
and films were not recovered from the videodiscs, but instead were re-digitized from
the original analog films at a higher resolution than the videodiscs contained.
The curious reader can find more about how this data was recovered and re-recorded
on the Public Record Office website at:
http://www.pro.gov.uk/about/preservation/digital/domesday/default.htm

Cambridgeshire Baptisms in Dr William's Library 1742 -1837
by V & N Uffindell
Non conformist Ministers began in 1742 to collect together the "General
Register of Births" (i.e. Non Conformist Births) and arranged for it to be
housed in Dr Williams' Library in London. The original initiative came from
the Baptist, Presbyterian and Congregationalist churches.
Registration was open not only to Londoners and to Non-Conformists, but to
any parents who were willing to sign the certificate and to pay the 6d fee.
It was poorly used until 1769, when it became a repository for Non-
Conformist Minister's books. The whole was handed over to the Registrar
General in 1837.
1200 entries for people born in Cambridgeshire have been extracted by Norman
and Vicky Uffindell, and the full information is available on the Cambridge
Record Office shelves, and will be published by CFHS shortly.

The Register of Essex-Related Dead of World War II

The Register is a database of people born, resident, educated, worked, died and/or buried
in the county of Essex (the old County, right up to the River Lea and thus including many
places now in Greater London), or who have some other connection with the county, and
whose death was attributable to World War II.  The database includes service personnel and
civilian air raid victims, internees, etc.
There is an on-line name index at my website (URL below), which I have just updated and
which now contains a little over 9,000 entries.  I still have more than 5,000 names to add
over coming months.  The information held on each entry varies - it may be just a name
from a war memorial, but it might be chapter-and-verse on the person, including
circumstances of death, where buried, etc.
Anyone finding a name or several of interest may e-mail me for the full entry. 
I try and respond with two days, but this isn't always possible.  There is no charge
for this service.
I will also welcome details about those who are or whom you think should be on the
database.

the castles, and the workhouses, and giving a glimpse
of most of the people between. There are details of a
field name study (recently added) which will help
local historians particularly, but also you might be
able to find a location mentioned in a will, or other
document (after all many of us describe locations as
next to one field or another. Easy to load and move
around this site is really very nice. Look out as well
for sections on prisons, and railways. The drawback is
the lack of lists, as we all, as family historians
like lists, but otherwise it is a very good site

The University of Hertfordshire some years ago (around 1995) conducted a
large Project involving transcription from and analysis of the 1851 Census
of the whole of Hertfordshire, and as part of the process created surname
indexes to many large and small placenames.
Copies of these indexes were donated to the Herts County Archives, and can
be accessed from open shelves, but there is no on-line access.
For those who are interested in this 'buried treasure' we have been advised
that the whole or major part of the University's Project is in course of
being printed as a series of twelve volumes, of which the first two are
already in print, (1996 & 2000) and others are in  preparation.     Note
that these contain much more than the indexes, so are physically large
volumes page-wise.   (416pp & 704pp)
The publishers are the University of Herts Press      URL

Full details of the publications. prices, and overseas distributors in North

London 1891 Census Index on CD-ROM

S&N Genealogy Supplies has released version 3 of its popular London 1891 census
index CD-ROM. I had a chance to use it this week and found it to be a great genealogy
product.

The London 1891 Census Index CD-ROM lives up to its name: it contains an
index to the 1891 London Census, while images of the original census records
are also available from S&N Genealogy Supplies on a separate set of disks.
Remember that the original census records are not indexed. Searching for an
ancestor in the millions of listings for the City of London is a real "needle in a
haystack" experience unless you have S&N's index.

The following link is a really excellent site, although it takes a while to get to grips with
the masses of info which includes vast numbers of photographs and texts on London labour,

Below is the preamble on the site that describes it (the language is a
bit stodgy but the site is really good)
The digital archive represents a comprehensive and integrated collection of sources and
resources on the history and topography of
London. Texts, images, and maps in the Bolles collection are all interconnected. Together
they form a body of material, heterogeneous in form, but homogeneous in theme, that
transcends the limits of print publication and exploits the flexibility of the electronic medium.
The digitized maps are linked to each other, to relevant source texts, and to illustrations of the
locations as they appeared a the time or at present. Similarly, the texts are linked to the maps
and the images, and so on. This makes it possible to use the collection in ways that would
not be possible
outside the electronic environment, and is what makes the digital archive a new model of
access to primary and secondary source material.

OXFORDSHIRE FHS JOINS THE CD REVOLUTION
For over ten years, the Oxfordshire FHS has published a wide range of Parish register
transcripts and monumental inscriptions, and census indexes and transcriptions, on microfiche.
However, by popular demand, the society is now making such data available on CD in
the popular Adobe Acrobat format. The use of Acrobat means that this data can be
accessed by PC and Mac users alike. The 1861, 1871 and 1891 censuses of Oxfordshire
and North Berkshire have been fully indexed by members of this society.
These continue to be available on microfiche, but are now also on sale on CD.
Furthermore,  an increasing number of our parish register transcripts are now available
on CD, including those for the Oxford City and Wallingford areas. Further
area collections will follow on CD in the near future.
Another interesting gem now on CD is Volumes 1 to 11 of the "Oxfordshire Family Historian".
 This is the society's journal, which has been published three times per year since the society's
formation in 1976. This CD includes over sixty editions of the journal published over a
twenty-one year period, and includes many quality articles written by its first editor,
Jeremy Gibson of "Gibson Guides" fame. This is a real
treasure trove of data for those with Oxfordshire research interests.

ENG PARISH REGISTERS

English Parish Registers. Some useful dates -
1538     Parish registration began officially, although very few parish
records now go back this far. Many registers were kept on loose sheets of
paper, which have since been lost or destroyed.
1597     An Act of Parliament was passed which stipulated that the incumbent
of each parish should keep bound registers, which recorded baptisms,
marriages and burials. Earlier entries were meant to be copied into the new
book but this was seldom done, and few clerks recorded events before 1558
(accession of Elizabeth I). A duplicate set of entries also had to be sent
to the bishop each year. These are known as the Bishop's Transcripts. They
were originally deposited at the diocesan office and can be invaluable if
they still exist where the parish register has been lost. 1653     During
the Interregnum (1649-1660) the responsibility for registration was
transferred to an elected Parish Register (a term used to describe a person,
whom we would now call a registrar). A one shilling registration fee was
imposed and this discouraged many people from registering at all.
1660     Along with the monarchy, the old system of church registration was
restored, but the laws governing registration weren't stringently enforced.
As a result, many events, especially marriages, went unrecorded. However,
many children who had not been baptised during the Commonwealth period
because of the cost were baptised under the Restoration, when the practice
was again carried out free of charge. You should not assume that all
baptisms which took place during the early years of the Restoration were of
newborn babies. 1694     From this year until 1705 a tax of sixpence was
imposed on registration, so many poorer families failed to register at all.
Private baptisms often took place at home instead.
1752     The Gregorian Calendar was adopted, whereby the year began on 1
January. Prior to this date the year had officially ended on 25 March (Lady
Day). For entries before 1752, the dates between 1 January and 25 March need
an extra year added to them. For example, a baptism recorded on 7 February
1728 would, by convention, now be recorded as 1728/29.
1753     Hardwicke's Marriage Act meant that couples now had to marry in the
parish where one of them lived. Banns had to be called or a licence issued
in advance. The marriages had to be entered in a book specially designed for
the purpose, endorsed by the signature (or mark) of both bride and groom and
witnessed in writing. Marriages could now only take place in licensed
buildings, which were always churches or chapels belonging to the Church of
England. Only the marriages of Jews and Quakers were exempt. Roman Catholics
and Non-conformists still had to register in an Anglican parish for the
marriage to be legal, even if their own church kept records of the
marriage. 1783     Under the Stamp Act of 1783, a duty of threepence was
placed on all registrations. Many poorer families simply failed to register,
and the Act was repealed in 1794.
1812     Rose's Act standardised Church of England registers. It came into
effect on 1 January 1813. The registers now took the form of bound volumes
of printed forms. Baptisms showed the name of the child and its parents, the
father's occupation and where the family lived. Marriages showed the name
and parish for each partner, and also the names of witnesses. Burial records
now gave the age and residence of the deceased. 1837     Civil registration
began. Banns and marriage licences were no longer obligatory. Parish
registers contain much of the same information, but can supply extra
information, and, if the family stayed in one area, can be cheaper to use
than buying several certificates. Marriages could again, legally, take place
in Roman Catholic and non-conformist places of worship, although a Registrar
had to be present.
1874     Fines began to be imposed for non-registration in the civil
registers.
1979     All parish registers now had to be deposited with the local record
office, unless it could be proved that the parish itself had adequate
storage facilities in which the registers could be preserved.

Hard copy service for Suffolk marriage registers
now available -

English Origins users can now order, online, hard
copies of Suffolk parish register entries indexed in
Boyd's Marriage Index. Boyds Marriage Index covers the
years 1538-1840, and contains over 277,000 Suffolk
marriages (over 554,000 names).  This is the first
county to have hard copies
available, and we plan to introduce the facility of
ordering online for all other counties covered in
Boyds in due course.

Hard copies are available for 52,000 of these
marriages (104,000 names).
Details of the parishes for which hard copies are
available can be found at:
http://www.englishorigins.com/help/bmi-parishstats.asp?county=Suffolk.
You can view example images at:
http://www.englishorigins.com/help/bmi-extracts1.aspx

 This is a super little database of information about the Cosford registration district

the names, parishes and regiments or ships of those Suffolk men who were killed
in action in World War One. The index page is useful and gives the background
to the roll, and the
reason for any inaccuracies, and the reason why Ipswich is not included in the roll!

ships and owners that come from the UK. If your
ancestor went to sea, particularly as a merchant
seaman this is a website to delight you. You have to
be patient, it take a bit of time to load, but the
records are worth it, and there is a lot on line.
Registers of ships, yachts and men. A super site which
will be well worth a visit, or at least remembering!
