Registry of Deeds Index Project: Latest updates and 'unusual considerations'

The latest update to the Registry of Deeds Index Project sees 294,749 entries in the main index, transcribed from 23,384 memorials of deeds. The database is fully searchable, and free of charge.

Additionally, steady submissions from volunteers have helped both the Grantors Index and Townland Index grow. There are now 24,609 and 65,617 entries respectively.

Some new material has also been submitted by Mike from Vancouver, one of the Project's hardest working volunteers. He has collected occurrences of unusual considerations appearing in the memorials of deeds, where landlords have demanded unusual items from their tenants. You can view his collection via the link in the last sentence. Note his request for researchers to send him details of any others they come across.
