Society of Genealogists London

NEW on the Society of Genealogists website - 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.

Material may be photocopied (at the Librarian's discretion) but is not available for loan, nor, due to limited staff time, can it usually be searched for named individuals. Enquiries should be made using the link to the Limited search & copy service.

This index was compiled from a physical examination of the contents of the boxes forming the Collection. It is now regularly updated by volunteers and further help in this task is always welcome. Please contact the Librarian if you would like to volunteer."
