Dear Users of the OGI,
An additional 1,737 data sets have been added to the Online Genealogical Database this week. The majority are the new Ancestry Staffordshire Parish Register collections. These cover Baptisms, Banns, Marriages and Burials from 1538 to 1900. This brings the total of data sets on the OGI to 413,443. Each one was researched, typed in and uploaded! Seven years in and the OGI is still growing.
I was very honoured to receive the personal project of former vicar Andrew Knight of Lougher, St Michael's parish in Swansea.
I hope the OGI can be a tool to preserve the projects of others unavailable elsewhere online.
