Surgery over - back to gathering data!

Greetings from the couch of recovery....

I had three surgeries last week and now have an expected 6.5 inch (19 stitches) scar on my leg due to something called Compartment Syndrome which happens when a limb is starved of bloodflow for too long.  The main surgery was completed successfully but due to the leg problem, I was rushed in for another surgery 3 hours after the first (on the NHS, that is a rush apparently).

Good news is I now have more time to work on the Online Genealogical Index and find more resources for those using the site!

This week's additions are:

  • Lancashire Civil Registration Marriages
  • Rutland Parish Registers from
  • Dorset Parish Registers and Monumental Inscriptions from
  • Suffolk Gravestones
  • Lancashire Parish Registers from
  • Yorkshire Civil Registration Marriages
  • Norfolk Archdeacon Transcript collection from Ancestry
  • Devon Parish Register collection from (transcriptions and images) - This addition has taken weeks as it is one of the eight British collections containing just film numbers in the image index.  All places and corresponding film numbers are now in the database!

Total new record sets this week = 2835

I hope these new records will help you in your search for your own family....

Now back to resting on the couch and napping a little!
