Return to the land of the living

Dear Friends of the OGI,

I am happy to report that I have survived my surgery and have now after 4 weeks turned on my laptop to catch up with OGI work and get the database updated.

There were 204 new data sets uploaded today.  Here is the breakdown.

  • TINSTAAFL Norfolk Baptisms Project - 10 new parishes
  • TINSTAAFL Marriages - 31 new parishes
  • Shropshire BMD Deaths - 18 new data sets
  • Staffordshire BMD Births and Deaths - 4 new data sets
  • OPC Dorset - 15 new data sets
  • Lancashire OPC - 15 new data sets
  • Gravestone Photos - 6 new locations
  • Findmypast - 21 new Welsh record sets
  • Ancestry Westminster - 82 new data sets
I am glad to be back but it will still be a long road to a full recovery.  My surgery was 4.5 hours and gave me a new 43cm scar.

Thanks for using the site and for letting me know of updates.  I had an email last week telling me about a change in a website so that has now been corrected and will work again (Great Harwood in Lancashire - see this wonderful website here:

Here is a beautiful sunset I photographed a few weeks ago from my back garden.  We hope to see a few more before the winter.

Have a wonderful September and I hope to return again in the autumn with more updates.

Best wishes,

Tim Manners
