St Mary Bourne, Hampshire

St Mary Bourne HampshireJust come across the fact that St Mary Bourne burials 1756 – 1757, 1780 – 1863 are now online at FamilySearch. Good to see more burials being added to the collection, I have far too many people sitting on my family tree waiting to be buried !

I also found the website of St Mary Bourne church which has a good history of the parish.

Medieval English Towns

Medieval English TownsIf you have established family lines back to the Medieval period then this website will interest you. Working with material as far back as the Middle Ages it is essential to have a good understanding of the social background of the records, the why, where and how of the records you are looking at.

This site states ….

The aim of the Medieval English Towns site is to provide historical information about cities and towns in England during the Middle Ages, with particular but not exclusive emphasis on medieval boroughs of East Anglia and on social, political and constitutional history. A growing selection of primary documents (translated into English) relevant to English urban history is included.

Docking, Norfolk

Docking, Genealogy, Family HistoryI came across this website whilst browsing the internet looking for info on Norfolk. What a delightful find it is and all thanks to the webmaster (I couldn’t find his/her name).

The site concerns itself with families who lived in Docking and traces their family history. There are plenty of lovely photographs and lots of links to other Norfolk sites. All in all a gem of a website and a gift for those with ancestors from this area of Norfolk.

Black Country Genealogy

Black Country GenealogyThis website is one of seven connected websites that are a real treasure house of information for those with family from the Black Country. As I understand it the Black Country is comprised of West Bromwich, Oldbury, Blackheath, Cradley Heath, Old Hill, Bilston, Dudley, Tipton, Wednesfield and parts of Halesowen, Wednesbury and Walsall.

These sites contain images (almost 5,000 of them!), parish records, monumental inscriptions and much, much more. I couldn’t see who is the author of these sites, but whoever they are they are definitely a “Genealogy Hero” !!


Haverhill Suffolk

The Haverhill branch of the Suffolk Family History Society has its own website and what a grand site it is. The group have put online church transcripts, articles on families from the area, the 1891 census for the area, links, a forum and contact details.

The site is part of a larger website for the Haverhill area and this has pages for local history and other items of interest to those with links to Haverhill.

Well done !!
