Durhams Records Online update

From Durham Records Online (www.durhamrecordsonline.com):

What's New at Durham Records Online:

South Shields St. Hilda baptisms 1880-1891
9,906 baptisms at South Shields St. Hilda spanning 1880-1891, from the Bishop's Transcript with extensive checking against the parish register.

Easington burials 1653-1757
2,312 burials at Easington St. Mary the Virgin, filling a gap we had from 1653 to the end of 1757. We now have a continuous run of burials at this church from the first register in 1570 to 1956 – nearly 400 years of burials.

Gainford baptisms & burials 1760-1797
884 baptisms and 719 burials at Gainford St. Mary in Teesdale district, covering 1760-1797, joining our existing collection for 1798-1851 at this church, from a combination of the parish register and the Bishop's Transcript for maximum detail.

Annual Subscriptions
You can now buy an annual subscription to Durham Records Online for £96 or $155 US. With that, you get:

unlimited access to all the records on the site for 12 months from the time of purchase. No more rationing your site credits or having to go through the payment process every few weeks (or hours, for our power users) to buy new ones!
the ability to filter your search by Parish instead of the broader District – you can select one parish or multiple parishes from a new drop-down list that appears when a subscriber logs in. This is very helpful when you want to search in just one parish or one parish and its adjacent parishes.
for parish records, the search results list will show the parish in which the event occurred, rather than District
for marriages, the search results list will show the spouse, allowing you to avoid a click for details if that is not the marriage you seek
We will probably add some more search filters or other capabilities in the upcoming months.

We are not offering the option to pay in monthly installments at this time. If there is high demand for that, we will look into it. We will not auto-renew the subscription; we will remind you when it's time to re-subscribe and will offer you a "loyalty discount” on the subscription price. We are not offering to cash in your existing credits; they are still perfectly good and you can use them up at your leisure and buy a subscription later if you like.

We intend to always offer a wide range of options for everyone from the person who buys one record at a time to the person who needs to see hundreds of records per month. We will continue to offer both credits and the ability to buy a single record or as many as you want via the shopping cart.

If you're interested in a subscription, click Purchase, which can also be found near the login boxes.
