Dear Patrons of the OGI,

Despite the lockdown, the lack of toilet paper, the empty supermarket shelves, the broken shopping process, the OGI lives on and is growing every month.

Ancestry has released updates and new Bristol record collections for Non-Conformists.  Bristol is an amazing place with hundreds of places of worship for many different denominations.  

Today's additions include the following:

  • Ancestry Bristol Non-Conformist Registers: 289 data sets
  • Dorset Online Parish Clerk: 3 new data sets
  • Durham Records Online: 3 new locations
  • FamilySearch Suffolk Memorial Inscriptions: 42 new locations
  • FamilySearch Suffolk Parish Register images: 129 data sets
  • Findmypast Hampshire Parish Registers: 28 new parishes

  • Sheffield Marriages: 3 new data sets
  • Staffordshire Civil Registration: 10 new data sets
  • TINSTAAFL Marriage project: 16 new locations 
  • TINSTAAFL Norfolk Baptisms: 3 new parishes

I wish you all a safe and healthy month (or more) ahead.  Make use of the time at home to do more research, scan in family photos and upload to your favourite family history archive.

Check out the free photo colourization tool at MyHeritage.  Here are a few before and after examples from my own family archives ....

As you can see, the results are impressive and really bring old photos to life.

Until next time,
