Tim Lawrence , Head of Library Services at the Society of Genealogists has just informed me that he has finished uploading the following family history datasets to SoG Data Online. These can be searched by members through the Society’s website www.sog.org.uk following the links to MySoG. Non members can of course make a free search to see if the family surnames they are interested in are represented within any of the datasets.
Datasets now on SoG Data Online:
Boyd’s Marriage Index (Main series and 1st Miscellaneous Series)
Boyd’s London burials
PCC wills 1750-1800
Vicar General marriage licence allegations index
Faculty Office marriage licence allegations index
St Leonard’s Shoreditch burials 1805-1858
St Andrew Holborn marriages 1754-1812
The following datasets which contain a a large number of image files will be added to the Society Of Genealogists website more gradually. The completion date for this is May 2011, However, all can now be searched on www.findmypast.co.uk :
Apprentices of Great Britain
Boyd’s Family Units
Boyd’s London Inhabitants
Teachers Registration Council
Trinity House Calendars
Bank of England Wills
The addition of Boyd’s marriage index, by far the largest dataset, has slowed the search engine down slightly but Tim and his team are investigating this and will, hopeful ly, sort the problem out soon.
Tim also tells me he will be publishing more detailed information about each individual data set shortly so do keep an eye on the blog for this news.
