East Devon Tithe Maps


clip_image002East Devon comprises 29 parishes and the Tithe Maps for these parishes have been digitised and are now freely available online. The site notes that the map for Rousdown is not at the Devon Record Office and the Sidford map is yet to be scanned.

A nice, straight forward easy to use to website with just one click to get you to the actual map.




Guernsey Wikipedia


clip_image002What an excellent site http://www.guernsey-society.org.uk is for genealogists with Guernsey connections. There is a separate Family History Section and also a Wikipedia called Donkipedia. Lots to look at on this site; A – Z of Guernsey families with family trees, articles, old photos, articles and selected books available to purchase or online.

Take a look!




Church Photographs

clip_image002Have just found this rather useful website, it contains photos of churches and chapels, some are old postcards which give an idea of what the churches looked like before the modern day encroached on them.

Take a look!


Selborne Hampshire Riots

clip_image002If you have ancestors who were involved in the Swing Riots of 1830 then you will be interested in this website. John Owen Smith gives good background history of the riots that occurred in Selborne, Hampshire.

On the front page of this site there are some good links to history websites for this area of Hampshire.
