Lockdown updates!

Dear fans of the OGI,

I hope you are all well and safe at home and enjoying some extra time to do more genealogical research.

There are still new and updated data sets being added to the site at least once a month.  The latest update was added on 29th May.

Here are the details:
Number updated this week is 405 bringing the total on the site to 403,384.  Here is the current content of the Online Genealogical Index.

FamilySearch (despite claims by Findmypast) is still the largest collection of genealogical data for England, Wales and the Isle of Man online (and it's free!)

I hope the new additions will help break down a brick wall or bridge a gap in your tree.

Please be wise and stay safe.  

Best wishes,
