Will look forward immensely to that! One question – and forgive my ignorance here – but what do people mean when they refer to the “Library version of Ancestry”

We are using images supplied by TNA but are re-indexing the series from scratch.

The records will be available on the Library version of Ancestry.

We appreciate that our UK National Probate Calendar is an important resource for you, and we are working hard to correct transcription errors. However, this is a database fix and therefore doesn’t impact on new content production like 1911.

Thanks all for your comments.

It will save me so much money as I’ve been coughing up £30 every three months to ‘the competition’. I’m a great fan of ‘ancestry.co.uk’ and have found out shedloads of information so far. This will really enhance your site and put you ahead of the game. Many thanks!

THANKYOU

Please, please, pretty please finish the National Probate Calendar. What’s the hold up, anyway?

As has been reported numerous times, there are many, many pages from the Probate Calendar that have not been transcribed / uploaded (see 1930 names beginning with R & S for example, where only every other page has been done) I have been told by ancestry that it will take ‘months’ to get round to rectifying it, despite the fact that lots of customers paid extra to access it.

I have lots of people to research now.
A name index to the Poor law records would be good!!!

Can we look forward to more Parish Registers in other places?
