Another summer update!

 Dear Friends of the OGI,

One more update before I disappear for a while due to a surgery on the 18th August.

There are still exciting updates appearing online and I have found another 138 data sets to upload to the website today.  This brings the new total to 404,326.  There have been a total of 29,085 searches on the site since launch.  My wife jokes that most of them are probably mine (I hope she was joking....)

Here is the breakdown of today's upload:

  • Durham Records Online - 9 data sets
  • Findmypast Hampshire Baptisms - 6 data sets
  • Findmypast Hampshire Burials - 6 data sets
  • Findmypast Hampshire Marriages - 12 data sets
  • Findmypast Warwickshire Burials - 3 data sets
  • GravestonePhotos - 8 new graveyards
  • Lancashire OPC - 32 new data sets
  • Netherbury Dorset Parish registers - 3 data sets
  • OPC Dorset - 3 new data sets
  • Shropshire Civil Registration Deaths - 8 new data sets
  • Staffordshire Civil Registration - 12 new data sets
  • TINSTAAFL Marriage Project - 20 new parishes
  • TINSTAAFL Norfolk Baptisms - 3 new parishes
  • Yorkshire Civil Registration Marriages - 19 data sets
There are many enthused and talented researchers out there who are regularly adding to the pool of available resources online.  The majority are completely free and will help you in your genealogical research.

Best wishes to you all.  I do appreciate your use of the site and hope you find an ancestor using the resources using my Online Genealogical Index.

Until post-surgery!
