A Guestbook has been added to this site.

It replaces the largely defunct RootsWeb hosted Guestbook.

Many of my pages may still point to the old RootsWeb page as it will take time to run updates to point to here instead.

As the page says, look forward to hearing how/why you found my assorted webpages.

Lorna’s Links Genie Resources index updated to include the new GRO searchable index.

If you haven’t logged in to your account there for a while to order a certificate, you will be asked to (re)activate your account, or to register if you haven’t one already.

Fantastic to be able to see mother’s maiden name on births prior to 1911.

Fiona Brooker has a good blog post about the changes, as does the LostCousins Special Newsletter

A snapshot as at Jun 2016 of my original RootsWeb Guestbook is now included on this site (in a sub menu under the Guestbook tab).
I’ve given up waiting for RootsWeb to get theirs operational again.
When I have my server back and fully operational a new Guestbook will be provided on this site instead.

Bit of maintenance underway to rationalise the assorted sections of the site into one slightly more coherent whole.

A casualty of the first step was site unavailability for a few days while frantically searched around on how to dig myself out of  a self-created mess!

Please report any links that go nowhere – you may find them quicker than I do as I work through the pages.
