The Genealogist - new additions

New on The Genealogist (

Cornish Railwaymen

We have added Cornish Railwaymen to our Diamond subscription. This lists the names of all the men employed by the Cornwall Railway at the time of its take-over by the Great Western Railway Company on 15 June 1889.

Information includes (where available) names, occupations, places of work, wages or salaries, dates of entering service, and dates of birth for the officers and clerks.


New to our Directories section is the Cheshire History, Gazetter and Directory 1860. This is now available for all Diamond subscribers.

School, College & University Registers

We have added Cambridgeshire, Graduati Cantabrigienses 1500-1872 to our collection of School, College & University Registers.

TNA Names

Containing over 36,000 records covering various sources all over the UK, this is a great resource for those looking for documents at the National Archives. The full document reference is given for each name, along with some personal details where available.


We have added the following directories to all Gold and Diamond subscriptions:

Kelly's Directory of Barnet 1919-1920
Lancashire, Manchester Slaters Directory 1856


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
