LMA & Ancestry

LMA  & AncestryGot an email from the FFHS this morning about a meeting that they attended regarding cuts at the LMA. Amongst the information given was news about what Ancestry is releasing next from the LMA. It seems that London wills and Electoral Rolls will go online later this year along with the 1911 census. These releases will be followed by City of London Freedoms and talks are being held with the Livery Companies about digitising their records which are held by the LMA.

So good news, plenty of helpful London additions coming our way. It was interesting to note that the 1911 census will be included in all subscriptions not just the more expensive ones. Findmypast has had a good run with their exclusive offering of the 1911 census and I am sure they paid dearly for that right, but it will be good to see the census more widely available and affordable.

  1. That’s great news! One of my most treasured possessions is an original Freedom Certificate for my great-great-great-grandfather. It has information that was vital to my research.

    Excellent new. Will help with some London families and with my Quested One Name Study. Mush as I would love to do more frequent trips to England for research the fund just aren’t available.
