London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) have announced an exciting new digitisation programme in partnership with Ancestry.com.  It is anticipated that the full digitisation and indexing program will include:

  • Parish baptisms, marriages and burials
    Bishops transcripts
    Parish poor law records
    Boards of Guardians records
    Diocesan marriage bonds and allegations
    Non-conformist baptisms, marriages and burials
    School admission and discharge registers
    Electoral registers, overseers returns and poll books
    Land tax records
    Wills
    City of London Freedoms
    Middlesex Sessions – Transportation Contracts
    Consistory Court of London Matrimonial and Testamentary Papers

The first records will launch on Ancestry.co.uk in early 2009. Meanwhile the genealogists out there can visit the State Library to explore the many other databases available on Ancestry.com (library edition). This great resource is free to use within the State Library building.

  1. Hi there

    I have a question for someone.

    Couls SKS please let me know if there is a date yet for when the first London Records (Parish Records) from LMA are to go online with Ancestry.com?

    Thanks & Cheers for now, Neil

  2. I too have been trying to find out if there are dates available.

    I would also like to know if Ancestry will be charging addtional fees or if existing subscribers will be able to access the detail within their current membership price.

    Does anyone know?
