  2. Just sitting and waiting now my family names are near the bottom :(
     
  3. Anybody have any idea when other letters are going to get online? Is there a point in these records where (for example) there are no T's but every record for Q is unburnt?

    I've heard it will be next year.
    Still some missing on the A & Bs as well.
    Great uncle a 'B' is on there but his brothers, including my grandfather, are not.

    As far as I'm aware no it isn't that simple. I've looked (in the PRO) for a C and an M record with no luck but found an H record. You can actually see on the edges of the documents where they have been damaged by fire.

    More records are now online.
    Where they they just had the front page of the A&Bs, all the persons records are now viewable, with varying degree of damage and accuracy!

    Still some of my Bs missing though :cry:
     
  7. I've just spent the last few hours searching through the records of WW1 soldiers discharged to pension.
