Too tired to stare at a computer

I've been awfully busy and tired lately so I haven't had any time for genealogy. I popped by Ancestry yesterday though and see they have dramatically expanded the range of records from the London Metropolitan Archives, so if you have been waiting for access to some of the London parish registers held at the LMA you should definitely check to see if they are included in Ancestry's records yet. The links are:

Births/Baptisms 1813-1906
Marriages and Banns 1751-1921
Deaths/Burials 1813-1980
Parish Registers 1538-1812 unindexed

Be sure to browse down to the parish you are interested in first to see which years are included for that parish as it may only be one or two at this stage rather than the full stretch suggested by the database title. That way, you'll know whether to come back later to re-check.

October update

I'm still waiting on the last pieces of information to tidy up my page on milling, so that will have to wait another month! This means it's a small update this month - I've been through checking and updating all the links to external websites (the Buckinghamshire County Council had re-organised their website so all links to the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies resources had fallen over, and various others had also moved), and made the odd correction.

One new addition is a link to neighbouring Stewkley's Local History Group. Their website is still being built but they have a number of interesting research projects underway. If you are in the area their open meetings sound like they would make for a very interesting evening!
