The very latest news from the world of genealogy



Large number of Death Record transcripts added to TheGenealogist

TheGenealogist has just added over 10 million death transcripts to the website, bringing the total number of death records to now over 52 million available on the website for subscribers to access covering the years from 1910 to 2005. These transcripts can be used with a tool that lets you search across all the Birth, Marriage and Death transcripts, with built in SmartSearch technology, enabling you to find potential parents from a birth, potential children to a marriage and potential birth records from a death record. Here we take the example of well loved comedy actor Ronnie Barker who sadly died in 2005. This is one of the later records, the collection on TheGenealogist now dates back to 1910. From here,  the researcher can find birth records and further continue their search.

This is great, saves loads of time compared to looking through the pages, one for each quarter of each year.
How long before it will cover the 1800 entries?

Work is continuing at pace and it looks like death records stretching back to 1890 should be available very soon!
