More than 12 million records available on SoG Data Online

Another milestone has been reached in the number of online records made available by the Society of Genealogists. The 12 millionth record added to the website was a christening entry for William Gudgeon in the parish of Bugbrooke, Northamptonshire.

Those with Northamptonshire ancestry will be pleased to know that 16 parish registers for the county have recently been added to the fast-growing site, thanks to prolific transcriber Derek Allen. Notes in the registers often give poignant reminders of a place's history – the Northampton registers refer to the “dreadful fire that consumed to ashes in a few hours 3 parts of our towne” in 1675.
