Brief suspension of Society of Genealogists look up service

I have had a note from Else Churchill, genealogist for the Society of Genealogists in London, to say that the society's enquiry and look up service is closed for six weeks whilst it is under review. You can still seek advice from the organisation's telephone advice service, details can be found on

Else has also stated that if you have an order for hard copy from data found on Findmypast or SoG Data online, please forward it to events @ All other queries will still be dealt with.

On another front, I've also noticed that the society's index of data available online has been updated on February 20th, and can be viewed on a PDF file at

(With thanks to Else)
