Update from Durham Records Online

The followng are the latest developments and releases from Durham Records Online (

New search filter for Spouse in Burial Records 
The site has added a new search filter for the Spouse in Burial records. This means you can now filter your search results further and zero in on the record you want. For example, let’s say you run a search for the burial of a woman named Jane Wanless, but you get 10 or 20 results. Now you can add the first name of her husband “Johnson” as Spouse’s First Name and run your search again; this time, you will see only one record, that of “Jane Wanless, wife of Johnson Wanless”. This filter has been available for marriages for a long time, but we have just made it available in burials (including cemetery registers). Also, you don’t have to use a surname for this search.
