Hampshire Marriages 1538 – 1659

clip_image002The Hampshire Genealogical Society is pleased to announce that the Hampshire Marriage Index 1538-1659 on CD is now available for purchase £25.

The other indexes that the Society produce are now on Find My Past, I wonder when we can expect to see this latest block of information become available?




GRO Indexes move from LMA to Newcastle City Library

clip_image002Those of you who have used the GRO Indexes to births, marriages and deaths at the London Metropolitan Archive will find them missing on your next visit. The indexes are being moved to Newcastle City Library. However all is not lost as you can access the indexes by using Ancestry.com on one of the computers in the library.

Of course if you wish to search the indexes at home and you don’t subscribe to Ancestry then you can use the excellent free website http://www.freebmd.org.uk/
