The Genealogist update

The Genealogist ( is advertising that it has almost completed its fully searchable collection of English and Welsh 1911 census images, with the addition now of records for Cornwall, Worcestershire and Devon.

The site has also released the 1896 Devon & Cornwall Deacon's Court Guide and County Blue Book via its Diamond subscription, and the following directories to both its Gold and Diamond subs:

  • Kearsley's London Register 1787
  • Hampshire, Milford-on-Sea Guide and Directory, 1925
  • Buxton Guide and Directory, 1876
  • Thom's British Directory 1873
  • North East Lancashire with Bury and District, 1876
  • Bristol Guide and Directory 1793-1794
  • Birmingham Post Office Directory 1850
  • Worcestershire Post Office Directory 1850

Also some more parish records:
  • Staffordshire Rowley Regis Parish Registers 1539-1812
  • Devon, Hemyock Parish Register 1635-1837
  • Essex, The Parish Register of Lambourne 1582-1709

And finally, the site has added fully searchable birth indexes for England and Wales from 1930-2005:

We have now added over 6.2 million birth transcripts, bringing the total number of birth records to over 54.5 million. These transcripts can be used with a tool that lets you search across all our Birth, Marriage and Death transcripts, with built in SmartSearch technology, automatically showing partners full name where available, and enabling you find potential parents from a birth, potential children to a marriage and potential birth records from a death record.
