300,000 images now available on SoG Data Online
The Society of Genealogists' online records (SOG Data Online) recently reached a milestone, with the 300,000th image being uploaded. This contained a transcript of the parish register of Welford in Berkshire covering the period 1559-1812 that was originally published in 1892. It is one of 36 parish register transcripts added to the fast growing site over the past month. Some of the images are not yet indexed, so if you would like to help with this valuable task please email the Head of Library services Tim Lawrence. This can be done from home or at the Society.
As well as 300,000 images, the site contains the names of nearly 12 million of our ancestors that can be easily searched. If you have not looked at it recently, why not give it a go by typing a name of interest into the purple search box at the top right of the page. Searches are free, but to view the records you will need to be a member of the Society.
