Pay to view database: www.familyhistoryonline(.)net "We publish on-line records compiled by Family History Societies - quality data from experienced researchers with local knowledge providing more accurate details at fees that give value for money. Currently we hold some 16.8 million records that you can search. They include indexes (or fuller details of the entries) for baptisms, marriages, burials, monumental inscriptions, and census returns." You can search for your names and it will list their occurrences and the cost (pence) to view. Have only browsed so far, but it looks worthwhile. and www.thegenealogyclub(.)co(.)uk an online magazine. Free registration to view part of the site (which gives quite a lot of information) or a subscription to get to the whole site. Sue

Three good sites "Cradley Links" and "Black Country Pages " for census and Parish Register info in that part of the country. "Curious Fox" Similar to Genes but based on place rather than name and UK based.Place searches are free!

For people with ancestors in Cambridgeshire the CC website has online searching for BMD. It is being added to, and the fab thing is on Marriages it cross references the spouses surname, right from 1837! www(.)camcny(.)gov(.)uk You can also print a form to order the derts as well Julie T:)
