Came across this one recently. It is mostly London based but has some interesting sections on it relating to genealogy terms and the census (see my posting 'Where were they?) http://www(.)gendocs(.)demon(.)co(.)uk/ Mel

Came across this site earlier - suspect it would be helpful for anyone who has an ancestor who died whilst serving in the Metropolitan Police Service. www.met.police(.)uk/history/ There's a roll of honour and a book of remembrance for serving officers dating back to 1829. Gives name of officer and details of the incident that either resulted in death or serious injury. Emma.

Have just found this by accident: freesurnamesearch(.)com. It looks as if there is loads of information available although I haven't time to look at the moment. I was doing a search to try and answer someone's question on here and this part of the site looks as if it lists some interesting places to search - including prisons, strays etc: freesurnamesearch(.)com/search/uk/wes(.)html Sue

Cemetery Junction: This site is about helping the genealogy community find information about their ancestors. Cemeteries are an excellent source for genealogy, and are especially prone to surprises! Many of the cemeteries in this directory are linked to transcriptions entered by volunteers. Judy

Margaret from Burton on Trent recommended this one: http://www(.)paul_smith(.)doctors(.)org(.)uk/ArchaicMedicalTerms(.)htm It's excellent - and very helpful when you are trying to decipher the cause of death listed on old death certificates.

Just found this one today and have already used it half a dozen times. It is a birth date calculator . Useful if you only know age at time of death. http://longislandgenealogy(.)com/birth(.)html

Hello, I'm a Newbie, I stumbled onto this page and found it very helpfull, thought it might be useful to other Newbies. It explains in detail, coloum by coloum the breakdown of the Birth cert. (there are sister pages for other Certs.), it's part of a large site but the address below will take you streight there. www(.)dixons(.)clara(.)co(.)uk/Certificates/birth(.)htm Remove the brackets, the uppercase C in Certificates IS part of the address. All the Best Peter


Bethan Report 25 Nov 2003 17:33 fantastic site of information relating to Calverly Parish in North Riding also has loads of material, census records, parish records and war memorials on the villages of Farnley and Hampsthwaite - well worth a look if any of your relations come from this part of Yorkshire.
