Registry of Deeds Indexing Project - latest news

The latest update from the Registry of Deeds Index Project shows 190,233 index entries in the database.

They have been transcribed by the site's team of volunteers from 21,954 memorials of deeds.

Founder and webmaster Nick Reddan has also made some technical changes. "I have moved the site hosting to a less shared server so there should be an improvement in the performance," he says. "I have also changed the search page so researchers can now search on a combination of fields. As with all changes I may have introduced some bugs. If you find any let me know."

Nick can be contacted via the 'Email the Webmaster' button (bottom left) on the site's homepage.

UPDATE 7 August:
Nick has added a new search facility to enable a combined search for two names in memorials of deeds. "You can search for the occurrence of two families in the one memorial. You can also search for a family and a given name of another family in the one deed."
