Over two hundred new resources added today!

Hello friends of OGI,

The website has now been recommended by the Family History Guide and links their researchers to the resources found at ogindex.org.  Glad to know others in the genealogical community recognize the contribution of this site!

New data sets uploaded today:

Berkshire

8 new Berkshire Baptism sets from findmypast

Cumberland/Cumbria

78 digital Parish Register books from FamilySearch Books

Dorset

7 digital Parish Register books from FamilySearch Books
2 transcriptions from opcdorset

Durham

12 new data sets from FamilySearch, DurhamRecordsOnline and gravestonephotos.com

Gloucestershire

1 new cemetery from gravestonephotos.com

Hertfordshire

7 digital marriage registers from FamilySearch Books

Lancashire

Westmorland

6 digital parish registers from FamilySearch Books

Yorkshire

25 digital parish registers from FamilySearch Books
9 digital Memorial Inscription collections from FamilySearch
4 new marriage data sets from Yorkshire BMD

Total items added is 214.  

As you can see, I have been busy using FamilySearch Books who recently changed their search page and image browser.



I highly recommend you take a look and experiment with the search options to find what you need.  I hope the filtering options will improve over time but it is a lot more user friendly than the previous version.  You will only be able to view items marked as 'Public'.

I am confident there are thousands of other digital books in this resource which contain vital and church records for England, Wales and the Isle of Man.  I will continue looking through this collection and adding links to the Online Genealogical Index.

Hopefully, these new records will help you find your ancestors and complete branches of your family tree.

With kind regards and thanks for your support,
