Earlier today we released four new projects – Scioto County, Ohio, Marriage Records, 1803-1860, Bartholomew County, Indiana, Birth Records Index, 1883-1920, Montgomery County, Indiana, Index to Birth Records, 1882-1920 and Ireland, Lord Viscount Morpeth’s Testimonial Roll, 1841.
The first three projects listed are small, typewritten collections. These are collections that are available on Ancestry currently that we are indexing again to create a more accurate index that what is currently available.
The last project listed, Ireland, Lord Viscount Morpeth’s Testimonial Roll, 1841, is an interesting collection. Lord Viscount Morpeth was the Chief Secretary of Ireland and this roll, 412 meters or 1351 feet, is comprised of many sheets of paper put together with signatures from men in all of the counties of Ireland. Because the signatures are from the men themselves the handwriting varies from name to name and it can be a bit challenging. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the records and the man and hope you enjoy keying them!
If you have any questions about these project please post them on the Discussion pages of the wiki articles or on the New Project Q & A message board. Happy keying!
