What’s Coming in 2019?

2019 will see TheGenealogist adding millions of new records to its Diamond subscription and so increasing its coverage of a broad variety of records that are essential for family historians.

New Augmented Map Viewer - This major development will enable family historians to map their ancestors’ homes from the 1830s up to the present day. TheGenealogist’s Map Viewer, allows researchers to locate bygone as well as modern streets and so view the location of forebears from historic records. This unique tool will launch as the new enhanced method to view the Lloyd George Domesday Survey collection. To begin with those Rate Books and Map records, which have already been released on TheGenealogist will immediately become viewable using the augmented viewer. All new additions to this unique landowner set will in future be released using this powerful new viewer.

In 2019 TheGenealogist will also be releasing a set of Seamen records. More Naturalisation records will boost those already available on the site and there will be new Criminal and Asylum Records, Electoral/Poll and Voter Lists coming.

There will be a major release of New WW2 records.

Further sets include Occupational Records and Fleet, Marshalsea and Queen's Prison records.

Researchers will be able to take advantage of a fresh release of Parish Chest Records of Bastardy, Apprentices and Poor Law etc, a new release of Catholic Church Records.

The Newspaper and Magazine collection will see further additions this year.

Finally, there will be more Parish Records that will form a vital aid to discovering more ancestors using the resources of TheGenealogist.
