Getting the Most from the Society of Genealogists' Online Data - free talk
Wed 19 April 2017, 14:00 – 15:00 BST
The Society of Genealogists has made more than 11 million records available online. The collection is known as SoG Data Online. If you're a Member of the Society, you can view the full details of any record from home. If you're not a Member, you can carry out an initial search to see what is held but to view the full record details you'll need to join the Society.
SoG Data Online is constantly growing because we're continuing to add transcripts, indexes and images from our Library. It's becoming an increasingly valuable free resource for members. The records cover apprenticeships, Boyd's indexes, court records, education records, immigration, marriage licences, poll books, poor law records and wills.
There is a search option that allows you to look for names or just browse types of records. In this 1-hour talk Else Churchill, the SoG Genealogist, describes how to effectively search the records, and gives an update on what is available.
Founded in 1911, the Society of Genealogists (SoG) has a magnificent library and archive, with Britain’s largest collection of parish registers and many nonconformist registers.
