News From Ancestry

Today, Ancestry.com.au has launched online for the first time eight million of London’s oldest surviving parish records, the London, England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538 – 1812, charting the history of the city from the 16th Century to modern times and providing insight into the start of politics as we know it.

What makes this more interesting for us in Australia is that currently there are more than 2.4 million British immigrants in Australia with first generation British heritage who can now start exploring their revolutionary or royalist ancestors.
