What's new as of 14 Apr 2003:
Wow, with the advent of 1837online.com, we are rapidly enhancing our
collection of English births, marriages, and deaths from the GRO index.
Thanks to data contributions from Claire Wandless, Angela Hefford, Michael
Wanless, and myself, we now have MANY more entries than we had before,
which should in turn enable more people to connect their lines. Also thanks
to Elaine Lipe for a generous financial contribution toward the index
extraction effort. If anybody else would like to help with this effort
financially or by extracting data or by sending me the page images for
extraction, please contact me. Every quarter helps.
I am pleased to announce that we have linked the line of Michael Wanless
(about 20 people and growing), formerly in tree 100, into tree 43, giving
Enid Betts a new cousin. Michael's line is concentrated in the South
Shields area, but originated in Newcastle. Also, we have located and
ordered the marriage of Joseph Wanless & Dorothy Winship of the Bishop
Auckland area, so expect to make a breakthrough on that line soon.
--New Manitoba births/marriages/deaths file, thanks to Michael Kinsey.
--Updated all the files of English marriages/births/deaths from parish
