Ancestry.co.uk has put the first records online from the London Metropolitan Archives. They are Poor Law Records 1840 – 1948, Workhouse Births & Baptisms 1834 – 1906 & Workhouse Deaths & Burials 1834 -1934. According to an article in the Daily Mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1165021/Workhouse-records they reckon to have all the records online by late 2010. What a great resource this will be for those of us, and that must be most of us, who have London ancestors.
Having said that I have just tried to access some records and it comes up telling me to upgrade my subs to Premium, as I already have a Premium membership this seems a little odd. Hopefully they will respond to my email and put this right.
