The Gentleman's Magazine

More and more copies of the Gentleman's Magazine are coming into the public domain via the internet archive. This is a collection of links to the ones available currently, which I hope to add to when I discover new ones.

You may find notices of births and deaths, other announcements in here. The numbers after the title in the Internet Archive don't seem to relate to the date of the magazine.

Useful free resources

I have found two brilliant resources in the past week for family history:

The British Genealogy forum, which has a "Brickwalls" section for people who have come up against a brickwall in their research.

That forum has a section to allow people to offer certificates which they have ordered in error. That's also a service on offer at the BMD Certificate exchange site, which is becoming a wonderful resource too.

For infomation about Clergy in the Church of England, I recently discovered a great free resource, the Church of England Clergy database.

1911 census released

The government today releases the 1911 census for searching by family historians. This is thee years ahead of the normal 100 year embargo.

You can find the website here. The major problem is the cost... it costs 10 credits to access a transcript of the information for a particular census return, and 30 credits to look at the original return. 60 credits are £6.95.

This census gives a lot more information than the previous censuses... it tells you how long a couple has been married, and how many children they have had even if they are not with them: it also tells you how many children have died.

The detail on birthplaces means that the street and place are given, which will be a great help.
