FamilySearch additions

FamilySearch ( has added part of an index to the English and Welsh 1871 census to its site. The search page notes "Currently this collection is 26% complete. Additional records will be added as more counties are completed indexing. This data has been provided through a cooperative project between and". Also available is a new index to its Norfolk parish registers collection from 1538-1900 and some further images, as well as more Welsh probate record extracts. Also, a nod to the current Genealogy in Time newsletter for pointing out the release of Isle of Man parish records recently on the site (not sure if I covered it!).

From a personal point of view, I'll be having a delve into the new Queensland cemetery records collection from 1802-1990 to try and find a few of my folk!
