TheGenealogist releases over 100,000 Parish Records and thousands of voter records


In time for the snap general election, TheGenealogist is adding to its Polls and Electoral records by publishing online a new collection of Poll books ranging from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

These new records released today offer a tantalising snapshot of our ancestors interaction with the Church and the State of the past.

  • Find the names of people and their ‘place of abode’ in the electoral registers
  • Discover the nature of their qualification to vote, such as possessing a Corn Warehouse, a Workshop, a House, or owning a Brewhouse
  • Some of the earliest records in this release reach as far back as 1209 when the king who was known as Johan sanz Terre (John Lackland) ruled the country
  • The Parish Records are one of the most useful of all resources for family historians as they can be used to find the baptism, marriage or death of an ancestor at a time before the civil registration of births marriages and deaths

The records cover 35 different registers of people who were entitled to vote in Wakefield, West Yorkshire and other constituencies situated in Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and New Westminster in Canada. These have been added to our Poll and Electoral Roll collection covering millions of records.

At the same time TheGenealogist continues to expand its vast Parish Record collections with the addition of 100,000 new individuals added for the County of Worcestershire and additionally the Registers of the Parish Church of Rochdale in Lancashire that covers the period between 1642 and 1700.

Also being released at this time are some records that will take the researcher all the way back to ancient times!

The Roll of Mayors of the Borough and Lord Mayors of the City of Leicester records the names of men holding that office from between the 10th year of the reign of King John in 1209 and all through history to 1935.

The Worcestershire Parish Records were added through a partnership with Malvern FHS while the electoral records are taken from the official lists produced to record who was entitled to vote in the various parliamentary elections.

IDG Introduces their Newest of In-Brief Research Guide: “Pennsylvania genealogy” by elissa scalise powell


The In-Depth Genealogist (IDG) is pleased to present their newest in-brief research guide in the research series by writer, Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL, entitled “An In-Brief Guide to Pennsylvania Genealogy.” Elissa is a western Pennsylvania researcher and co-director of the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP). She is a past-president of the Board for Certification of Genealogists and coordinator of the IGHR “Professional Genealogy” course since 2007 She was an instructor for Boston University’s Genealogical Research Certificate course (2008-2016) and co-coordinator of SLIG’s 2013 “Credentialing: AG, CG, or Both?” course. Elissa’s familiarity with Pennsylvania history and research helps make this research guide a real value to anyone wanting to go further with their Pennsylvania ancestors.

Pennsylvania’s nickname, the Keystone State, is true in genealogy as well. Many of our early ancestors first came to America through the port of Philadelphia which was also the nation’s first capital before it moved to Washington, D.C. “Penn’s woods” welcomed people of all faiths and ethnicities making it Penn’s “Holy Experiment.” The westward expansion of the early 1800s toward Pittsburgh and the head of the Ohio River saw our ancestors open new territories. The industrial revolution of the late 1800s and early 1900s brought new immigrant workers to the coal mines and steel mills of Pennsylvania. The Allegheny Mountains, which run through the center of the state, were a barrier to westward expansion and still divide the state today with differences from language accents and food to sports and politics.

“An In-Brief Guide to Pennsylvania Genealogy” is available now as a PDF ($2.75) and a printed laminated guide, 8.5” x 11” ($9.95 + shipping) through The In-Depth Genealogist Store (http://theindepthgenealogist.com/shop-idg/idg-products/). IDG has published twelve guides which are all available as 4-page PDFs and laminated print versions. Subscribers to the digital magazine, Going In-Depth, receive a 10% discount on purchase of each guide.

New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday, April 21, 2017


Over 128,000 brand new records are available to search this Findmypast Friday, Including:


Over 76,000 additional records have been added to the Easter Rising & Ireland Under Martial Law 1916-1921 collection. These once classified records, digitised from original documents held by The National Archives in Kew, record the struggles of life under martial law in Ireland and contain the details of soldiers and civilians who participated in or were affected by the Easter Rising of April 1916.

Your ancestor may be found in the records if they were killed or wounded during the conflict, arrested and held in internment, or tried by court martial. Additionally, if their home or place of work was searched they may appear in the records as the collection shows the efforts of the military and police to discover arms, ammunition and seditious material through thousands of raids.


Discover your ancestor’s baptism, marriage, or burial with over 10,000 records taken from original parish registers from Christ Church Cathedral in New South Wales. The records span the years 1804 to 1900 and will reveal the names of your ancestor’s parents.
Currently the collection holds just over 5,000 baptisms, around 2,200 marriages records, and just over 3,300 burials. Some burials have also been transcribed from newspapers and other sources.


Explore this index of over 19,000 records to see if your ancestors crossed the Atlantic and uncover details of their voyage. Each record will reveal the individual’s age, status, nationality, occupation and details of their voyage.

These records pertain to British and non-British passengers and crewmen arriving at Sydney from 1 January to 31 March 1881. There are a number of reasons why someone may be missing – or appear missing – from the 1881 British census such as death, misspellings, transcription errors, temporary absences and migration. Emigration was perhaps more common than assumed – over 4 million people are estimated to have emigrated from the British Isles (including Ireland) between 1853 and 1975.


Over 2,000 records have been added to our Australia, Boer War Contingents collection. Each record includes a transcript that will reveal your ancestor’s place of birth, place of enlistment, contingent, rank, awards and any additional notes.

The Second Boer War lasted from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902. It was fought between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the South African Republic and the Orange Free State. As part of the British war effort, troops were gathered from various colonies of the British Empire, including Australia. Australia sent eight contingents comprising around 15,000 men and women.


Over 19,000 records have been added to our collection of New South Wales, Closer Settlement and Returned Soldiers Transfer Files. These land transfer records can help you determine the property dealings of your New South Wales ancestors and see if they were involved in transferring land ownership. The records also include files relating to returned servicemen from the First World War who took part in the soldier settlement scheme.

Each record includes a transcript. The amount of information listed varies widely, but the records may include reveal your ancestor’s name, residence, settlement purchase number, settlement purchase area, farm number, the date of transfer and any additional notes.
