The census records can provide vital information about your ancestors. They record full names, addresses,
occupations, ages, relationships, gender, place/county
of birth and certain medical conditions, recording a
snapshot of family life in years gone by.
Help fill holes in your research with the largest range
of census CD roms available from any publisher.
These Acrobat CDs are transcripts of church records which date back
to 1538. The Phillimore series cover marriages from mainly southern areas, while other CDs cover parishes from counties across England and Wales. We have published these parish records when permitted to do so or when the records are out of copyright. We are always looking to increase the range of these publications.
Acrobat CDs are one of the few ways of tracking down a resident in
the UK before the Census. The book lists people that voted in elections,
giving the full name of the voter, their residence, free-hold property
and the way they voted.
Military Records - Army List & Navy Lists
Army & Navy Lists have been published regularly as annual
lists and quarterly lists. The CDs usually give a list of officers,
but some give more information. You can find out about an ancestors'
military career from these lists.
Directory Resources are both a research tool and a valuable insight into
the lives of your ancestors and what governed the lives. Pigot directories cover the major professions, nobility, gentry, clergy, coach
and carrier services, Taverns and Public houses of the areas. Entries
include the name, trade and address.
In later Kelly's directories
some residents will also be listed. There are sections on each major town
and surrounding villages, with a history of the area in a great deal of
detail as you would find in a gazetteer. Information on the main trades,
the chief land owners, the type of soil and even the coverage dates of
parish registers can also appear.
These are records of family pedigrees with the right to bear arms.
The visitations to a county by heralds occurred in the 16th and 17th century. Heralds had the official role to record who was entitled to arms and gather appropriate evidence.
These can be an invaluable source of genealogical information.
The visitations were printed in book form in the late 1800's and have been scanned by S&N and reproduced as Acrobat documents on CD.
Gazetteers are geographical dictionaries that contain information
on places and their location, helping you find a place that may no longer
exist. Some may also contain numerous maps. Atlases and maps can be a
great help when trying to find where a place is located and are a useful
complement to gazetteers and directories.
This collection includes rolls which list of officers who lost their lives
during the wars. Some contain lengthy information, portraits and circumstances
and date of death. Also included are collections of magazines that covered
the great war in detail, filled with pictures, maps and background detail.
Entrance lists for pupils can provide varying amounts of information including
names, biographies, dates of entry, date of birth, leaving date, and
accomplishments after leaving. Details on parents and guardians are also
sometimes available, as are details of school clubs, history, etc.
The Militia Act of 1757 provided for men to serve in the militia at home
to counter any threat whilst the regular army was abroad. Lists of eligible
men in each parish were known as liltia ballot lists and from these men
were selected to appear on militia lists, musters from these lists can
be found at the Public Records Office in the series WO13.
