Hope you are all having a great holiday season and if you celebrate Christmas, like I do, then I hope you have had a very peaceful and happy Christmas.
I am just back to where I can get online after a visit to North Wales. My journey was exciting, to say the least, with elderly parents and a dog on board and just getting out of the storm zone through flooding roads, torrential rain and low viability that made the deep standing water puddles impossible to see until the car was ploughing right up to its sills through them!
While I have been away I see that TheGenealogist has made a couple of important announcements and so I copy below the email that has been stuck in my inbox for days! It is exciting to see that the Tithe maps are now complete for England and Wales and I look forward to New Year’s day and the release of the first batch of Norfolk Record Office records.
This written by TheGenealogist:
We have been working extremely hard to bring you two significant releases for the Christmas period, the first is now live and the second will be released on New Year’s Day.
Firstly, we have announced the completion of our Tithe maps for England and Wales. That includes all 55 counties linked to the 14 Million searchable tithe schedules, to make it easy to see what plots of land your ancestors owned or occupied. You can read more about the release here.
Secondly, on New Year’s Day we’ll be releasing the first batch of records from our project in partnership with Norfolk Record Office, containing over 3.6 million individuals and fully linked to the original images of the registers.
These records will be available to all Diamond users.
