Ancestry adds London Gazette

Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) has added a new collection, The London Gazette (London, England), 1825-1962 at http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=50014. Bit of an odd choice to upload, as this is already freely available - and searchable - at www.gazettes-online.co.uk, and with a considerably wider year range, though it is always good to have alternative means to access collections.

Incidentally, unlike Ancestry, the Gazettes website also has the Belfast and Edinburgh editions, though not the pre-1922 Dublin Gazette. Its replacement, Iris Ofigiuil, is online at www.irisoifigiuil.ie, but only for editions from 2002 onwards.

My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at http://www.gen-ebooks.com/unlock-the-past.html, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see http://pharostutors.com/details.php?coursenumber=102. Time to smash a few brick walls...!
