What’s Coming in 2018?

2018 will see millions of new records added to TheGenealogist, increasing our coverage of a wide variety of useful record sets for genealogists.

We have already started releasing New Parish Records with original images and are continuing to expand our already large coverage of Baptism, Marriage and Burial records.

Millions of new additions for further counties will also be released in our Parish Record Transcripts and Bishops' Transcripts collections.

We are launching the second stage of the Lloyd George Domesday project, giving even more detail on where our ancestors lived. Released county by county, these records will accompany the highly detailed annotated historic maps. Searchable by name, address and area, results will link to the high resolution maps pinpointing the property.

TheGenealogist's ongoing project with The National Archives will see the release of yet more detailed Colour County and Tithe Maps with tags to show you where your ancestors lived.

In the coming months we are also expanding our Criminal, Migration and Newspaper collections as well as the International Headstone and War Memorial Projects as more photographs and transcriptions are added by our volunteers.

Keep an eye on this page for further announcements!

We have added over 366,000 individuals to our Parish Records for Warwickshire, to increase the coverage of this county in the heart of England.
