Ancestry has just put online an additional 300,000 poor law records for London. This is great news for those of us who have “lost” some ancestors in London ! The blurb from Ancestry says the new collection is everything from registers of servants (why these would be classed as poor law records I can’t imagine!!) to workhouse admission books.
I’m off to see if I can find any of my lost souls …… I’ll report back more fully when I have seen what’s there ….. might be a while!!
