What's New

Latest Additions:

It's that time at the beginning of the year when the latest records to escape from our Privacy Policy restrictions are published. In other words, just over 90 transcribed parish register entries for people known or assumed to have been born in 1916 are now available for searching.

Coming Soon!

Since July 2014 we have been busy transcribing the Electoral Rolls for the East Trent area, which is a huge task, but will hopefully be very useful, particularly for locating adults after the 1911 census. Transcription will continue well into 2015, and hopefully records up to and including 1935 will appear on the website before the year is out.

Update on the above! This task has been enormous, and, as of January 2016, there is still a fair way to go with the transcription of the Electoral Registers, including some verification which was unanticipated. However, the end is in sight, and we expect that a subset (from 1920 to 1935) will appear on the website in the first half of 2016.

Yet another update! Oh dear, the Electoral Registers are still not on the website at the beginning of 2017! There are a number of reasons for this which we won't bore you with, but the current state of play is that all readily available records have now been transcribed. However, there are some missing years and further work is still being done to track those down. No further promises as we don't like continually breaking them.

Because the Electoral Rolls are a civil resource (like the censuses) rather than an ecclesiastical resource (like the parish registers), we will also be adding a new "Villages & Hamlets" sub-section to the Regional Resources section of our website, in an attempt to cross reference everything correctly and to keep it all relatively self-explanatory.

Change History:

Every time the website is updated we'll put details of the new or amended content here, in reverse chronological order. There is plenty of new information to be added, so check back here regularly to see what's new!
