Some favourite Genealogy related sites ...
Sussex Family History Group ~ I am a member, and the group has many online and paper based resources to help the genealogist. In addition, they have been kind enough to link to my site from theirs!
The 1901 Census Page ~ a really great site, rather expensive, and fully working at last.
Sue Burton nee Dovaston ~ has family links to our common ancestors, the Creasey's of Sussex. I have unashamedly used much of Sue's information to plug the gaps in my knowledge of the Ashburnham branches. A really interesting site and well organised.
East Sussex 1851 Census Booklets for sale ~ C June Barnes
Ye Olde Sussex Pages - a miscellany of interesting stuff on Sussex
Links to Collins specific web sites ~ a more specific selection of links
The Access to Archives ~ A2A, online catalogue of Archives - UK Archives Network
East Sussex County Council ~ information about the Lewes Records Office
FreeBMD ~ a truly excellent site containing a voluntary transcription of the Births, Marriages and Deaths civil registration index 1837-1902 for England and Wales. There are still many gaps but they are becoming fewer. Lets hope that one day they might be allowed to transcribe the full details to supplement the index fully!
ONLINE PARISH CLERKS
The following links are to sites which focus on getting genealogical related records on line, and in my opinion are the ideal way for this work to progress. I am very grateful for all those who labour to make this information available. For a change I've listed them in reverse alphabetical order!
If you hear of any other OPC initiatives (UK only) then please let me know so I can add them to the list. I am hoping to get something going for East Sussex - so watch this space!
