Surrey Marriages online

Those of you who follow this site regularly will know about my theory that Ancestry put the announcements up on their site a few hours before the link is 100% working. Well it has happened again, I have been busy on the Ancestry site and suddenly a Surrey Marriages button comes up.

So if you think you have ancestors who may have married in Surrey it would pay to take a look in a few hours time when it is up and running !

Exploring Surrey’s Past

clip_image002Surrey Record Office recently won the “Your Family History” magazine’s Archive of the Year award. They were judged to give outstanding commitment to customer service, opening hours, onsite advice and the running of the Exploring Surrey’s Past website.

The website is certainly up there with the best and I am sure that other record offices will be taking a look to see if they can do something similar.

I don’t have any Surrey ancestors, but if you do then this site should be bookmarked because you will be returning to it again and again.

Kingston Cemeteries Registers

Looking for Ada Gertrude Fielder I came across the Kingston Council website which is great. They have indexed and put online scans of the actual burial registers for the cemeteries clip_image002in their care. I got the place and date of death, the date of burial and Ada’s age. Wonderful stuff!!
