First additions of 2018!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

This weeks new additions brings the data set total to 369,757 and includes the following:

England, Cheshire School Records, 1782-1950 from Findmypast (120 sets of school records).  These often include the student's full name, birth date and father's name.  This collection has been available for a while on for free but now Findmypast has released the same data.  This is an example of where data was exchanged between the two organizations.  The advantage for us all is more paid collections appear for free on!  All locations have been added to

FamilySearch has released the collection, England, Surrey Parish Registers, 1536-1992.  I have spent many hours going through this in detail to determine which parishes and year ranges are available and these have now been added to  I will be doing the same for the new England, Lincolnshire, Parish Registers, 1538-1990.

And, as usual, I have caught the new entries added over Christmas to the thorough Norfolk Baptisms Project site which is indexing all baptisms throughout Norfolk between 1813 and 1880. (see Tinstaafl Transcripts).  This past weeks addition was Hindringham, St Martin.

Have a great January!  I hope to add more records to the site for your research this month and will add a new blog entry with details each time that occurrs.  

If anyone has electronic copies of transcriptions, graveyard surveys, etc and is willing to share them with the world, they can be hosted by!  Just contact me at with details. 

Thanks for your support and use of the site!

Happy hunting (for ancestors),
