Today is the 10th upload of new data in 2019. Today's additions total 1,654 data sets.
Findmypast has claimed the release of a new collection which actually came out a number of months ago, don't believe everything you read! Their Phillimore Marriage collection has been on their site for a long time. But they did release the actual PDFs for browsing.
I found this information about William Phillimore on parishrecord.org.
W.P. Phillimore, born William Phillimore Watts Stiff, was the son of Dr Stiff, a Nottingham Doctor. He later took the name Phillimore from the family of his grandmother. While educated as a lawyer, he was also a publisher of books. In later life, he began to transcribe marriage registers, which he later printed in book form. When he died in 1914, he had covered 1,200 parishes from different counties in 200 volumes. He founded Phillimore & Co. Ltd in 1897, which have been publishing British local and family history for over a century.
Phillimore Marriage Records are a series of books published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Phillimore & Co. Ltd. They cover marriages from various parishes from each county, however there may be some omission as some of the registers have not survived. In some counties, the coverage of parishes is very good, whereas in other counties just a few parishes were transcribed - most counties do not have every parish transcribed.
All his available publications are online, the majority are found at archive.org and FamilySearch.org. Click HERE to view a list of free online copies of Phillimore's registers.
If you would like to know which parishes are included in his publications, there is an index available HERE. Note this was published in 1913 before additional volumes were added.

I am glad to see that the total of data sets on OGIndex.org is now 397,070.
I will be removing the broken Ancestry collections in the next few weeks. This may reduce the current total but I would rather have working data than a high number.
Thanks to the generous donation from the creator of ldsgenealogy.com, I have renewed the hosting of the OGI for another 4 years. Hope you will be along for the ride!
Until the next update,
