Amongst the latest releases from www.familysearch.org are some English records.

These records are indexes of the original registers, unlike the previous post there are not any scanned images available. However they are still a very useful resource for tracking down ancestors in Warwickshire.

Here is the link to the indexes …. https://familysearch.org/search/collection/show#uri=http://hr-search-api:8080/searchapi/search/collection/1462403

Amongst the latest releases from www.familysearch.org are some English records.

The info on Cornish parish registers is ….

Cornwall parish registers containing baptisms, marriages, banns, and burials. Records are restricted for privacy reasons according to the following dates: baptisms to 1910, marriages to 1935, and burials to present. Date ranges of available records may vary by locality and availability. This collection is being published as images become available.

These records are scans of the original registers which is great, however they have not all been indexed so you may have to browse the records page by page – just like the old days when we used to trek to the Record Office !

I can recommend reading the Research Wiki before you start using these records only takes a minute or two, but it is important they you have a sound understanding of the records that you are looking at. Knowledge is King in genealogy!

WW1 Silver War Badge

WW1 Silver War BadgeAncestry.co.uk have added another dataset to their Military Records Collection. This time it is documents recording the awarding of the Silver War Badge. The Ancestry website gives details of the badge …..

The Silver War Badge was one of World War I’s most distinguished awards. It was given to servicemen who were discharged with a serious wound or illness – they wore it at home so they wouldn’t be accused of not doing their duty.

Our records reveal over 800,000 injured soldiers, sailors and pilots. Find an ancestor among them, and you’ll discover their rank, when they started and finished in the Forces, the unit they left and why they were discharged.

Familysearch Batch Numbers

 

Familysearch Batch NumbersMany of you will have used the very useful Hugh Wallis Batch Number site over the past few years. It was a great site which was so helpful to so many family historians. Sadly it now has many problems due to the change in how the new family search website is constructed.

 

However there is a good entry on the familysearch blog which might help researchers. The site starts …..

The Hugh Wallis web site has been a popular and effective online utility tool for researchers to find relevant data on all ancestral connections found in FamilySearch extraction batches of vital and parish records of birth/christenings and marriages. Due to changes in the FamilySearch.org system, the web site became disabled and out of service until recently. Now, some batches do not appear in Batch Number searches.

The Hugh Wallis site is still there, but isn’t working 100% so if you are having troubles go and read the Familysearch blog and all may (or may not !) become clear.
