I visited Kensal Green a couple of years ago and it is a fascinating place for those with interests in family history or the way the Victorians created a huge industry out of death. The cemetery is one of the most prestigious burial grounds in London, mainly due to the internment of Prince Augustus Frederick and later his sister Princess Sophia. Everyone who was anyone in London at the time wanted their last resting place to be near such illustrious company.

The balance of records will go online very soon. When completed there will be 340,000 entries for genealogists to search. With two of the “Magnificent Seven” cemeteries now online I wonder if DeceasedOnline will be adding more in the future?

Wikipedia has a good page on the cemetery with an extensive list of notable burials and cremations and also a an interesting page on the Kensal Green area.

Here’s something to look forward to for those with ancestors from Dudley – new archives for the borough of Dudley are set to open a couple of weeks after Christmas on 14 January. The state-of-the-art centre is situated in Tipton Road and replaces the old Coseley Archives.

Dudley Archives have a website that offers information on visiting the archives, how to guides, details of courses run from the site, online catalogues and lots more besides.

WW1 Records for Wales go online

WW1 Records for Wales go online

The website http://cymru1914.org/ gives a brief description of the contents on offer on it’s front page, I can’t do any better than replicate it below !

This project has conducted mass digitization of primary sources relating to the First World War from the Libraries, Special Collections and Archives of Wales. The project will make available a coherent, consolidated digital collection revealing the often hidden history of the First World War as it impacted all aspects of Welsh life, language and culture. This digital archive brings together source materials that were previously fragmented and frequently inaccessible. This digital archive is a unique resource of vital interest to researchers, students, and the public in Wales and beyond.

Wow if you have Welsh ancestry then you will have plenty to search, view and enjoy over the holiday period.
