Registry of Deeds Index Project: update and new guide

The Registry of Deeds Index Project has been updated. It now holds 232,544 index entries from 26,222 memorials of deeds, all brought to you by the sustained efforts of a committed and international team of volunteers.

Access to the index is completely free.

Nick Reddan, who manages the site, has also added a navigation guide to help you find your way around the new FamilySearch collection of images. The LDS microfilmed records in the Registry of Deeds back in the 1950s and more recently digitised the microfilms. Last year, the digitised images started to appear on the FamilySearch.org website, allowing researchers to view indexes and memorial transcription volumes online for the first time. The navigation guide is designed to speed up your research.
