Associated Press and Quaker collections on Ancestry

Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) has added several collections in the last few days:

Associated Press, Subject Card Index to AP Stories, 1937–1985
Associated Press, Service Bulletin, 1904-1927
Associated Press, The AP World, 1943–2001
Associated Press, Name Card Index to AP Stories, 1905-1990

The Associated Press is a New York based news gathering and transmission corporation, but a quick search of the databases has already found mentions of some of my family members here in England and Scotland.

England & Wales, Quaker Birth, Marriage, and Death Registers, 1578-1837

These are GRO records held at the National Archives under RG6, and previously available on both The Genealogist and the BMD Registers websites.

To access the collections visit http://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/reccol/default or search via the card catalogue.


My latest book, Discover Scottish Civil Registration Records, is now available from http://www.gould.com.au (print) and http://www.gen-ebooks.com/unlock-the-past.html (ebook), whilst Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet is available at http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Tracing-Your-Irish-History-on-the-Internet/p/3889/. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the OPRs, starts Nov 13th - see http://pharostutors.com.
