SOG Surnames Collection

Society of Genealogists - Surnames Collection Introduction: "The Surname Document Collection is arranged A-Z by surname and consists of:

1. Original documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates, deeds, wills, marriage licences and settlements, apprenticeship indentures, letters etc

2. Manuscript and typescript transcripts of wills, parish register entries etc, family trees and other research notes

This index lists all of the surnames that are included in the Surname Document Collection. Cross references to alternative spellings may have been included but these are not necessarily complete."

and it is best to go to London personally for access to these documents.
