Findmypast has released a large collection of Durham Bishop's Transcripts covering Durham, Northumberland, Cumberland and Yorkshire. These are transcripts of their Durham Bishop's Transcript Image collection which was released last year.
They have also released an update to The National Burial Index. This has added hundreds of records for Durham, Essex and Yorkshire. These have all been updated on the Online Genealogical Index today making the total of available data set links 389,090. The goal of reaching 400,000 this year is still in my sights!

Total sets added/updated today was 1,883. As many of the National Burial entries were updates of year ranges to existing locations, I removed them and uploaded the new details.
I know there are some major collections coming this year from FamilySearch and will add the links to the OGI as soon as they are available.
I wish all of you a wonderful Easter and look forward to informing you of the next updates.
