- LDS Records Released on DVD Disks
An LDS Church-related publishing company is now selling a set of more
than six dozen DVD-ROM disks packed with 400,000 scanned images of
valuable and rare documents on the LDS church - the oldest of which is
170 years old.
In this case, the letters "DVD-ROM" do not refer to video. Instead,
these are the same as standard CD-ROM disks except for storage capacity:
a DVD-ROM disk can hold up 4.7 gigabytes of data on a single-sided disk,
roughly eight times the storage capacity of a normal CD-ROM disk.
The new collection is called the "Selected Collections from the Archives
of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." The set of 74
discs, published by Brigham Young University Press, sells for $1,299.
This is not a genealogy collection. However, it is interesting to note
that the Brigham Young University Press is closely affiliated with the
LDS Church. This new product may become a predecessor to the future
release of genealogy products on DVD-ROM disks by the Family History
Department.

The Genealogy Club UK is a virtual club for anyone wishing to pursue
their family history via the Internet primarily within the United
Kingdom. It takes on the format of a monthly magazine combined with the
mass of genealogy resources available on the Internet today. Currently,
each 'issue' is bi-monthly, but it is hoped this will change to monthly
in the near future.

The format is very simple. Just click on the relevant button to take you
where you want to go. Most of the content is free to access but requires
registration. All you need to register is your name, a valid e-mail
address and a password.
Other parts of the site are accessible by subscription only. Currently
this includes the Fun Time! and Find A Researcher sections. Subscription
costs just £6 a year. ENGONS Names Index
THIS DATABASE is an extract of an Office of National Statistics
database, and contains a list of surnames in use in England, Wales and
the Isle of Mann in September 2002. The list contains almost 270,000
surnames, shared by 54.4 million people. The entire database contains
over a million surnames, shared by 55.9 million people, but names shared
by fewer that five people have been excluded from this list. The
database was established in 1998, and births are continually added, but
the 1.5 million deaths between 1998 and 2002 have not been weeded from
the system. The database is also said to include a level of duplicate
entries and misspelt surnames, as well as people currently living abroad
and temporary visitors to England and Wales. However, experience
suggests that multiplying the result for your surname by 0.93 will give
a good idea of the living population for your surname, and multiplying
by 3.5 will give the population since the start of parish registers in
the 16th century.

On January 1 2003 the UK government released previously unseen documents
to the public. The vast majority of these documents were released under
the thirty year rule (established in 1967), which means that records or
documents produced by government are made available to the public after
thirty years.

The time is calculated by looking at the last paper or entry in a record
and adding one year to ensure that all the records are over thirty years
old. This is why documents from 1972 were opened on 1st January 2003.
Not every file is opened to the public. Some are closed for longer
periods because they contain distressing personal information or
information that may damage national security or international
relations. When these longer periods expire the records are also
released on 1 January of each year.
Often government records reveal the inside story behind some of the most
dramatic events of the year and expose what politicians were really
doing and thinking.

thousands were traveling to NZ for £1 each adult, children
free. Able bodied families were needed and sometimes older folk had to
lie
about their age. There is more info from the East of London Family

http://dcs1.uwaterloo.ca/~marj/genealogy/reports/emigrationsoc.html
"Emigration Societies were formed in various parts of the United Kingdom
to
assist those wishing to emigrate to the colonies. Some societies were
formed
by guilds, helping their own to make the move. Others were formed by
charitable organizations, assisting the poor or those out of work. There
were societies formed by various religions and there were others formed
to
assist child migrants. ... These emigrants were selected without
distinction
of creed, by the clergy and others personally acquainted with them, and
consisted of persons of good character, ready and willing to work, but
who
could not find employment in this country to enable them to support
their
families. They came principally from the districts of Poplar, Bow, Isle
of
Dogs, Limehouse, Stepney, Mile End, Whitechapel, Bethnal Green,
Clerkenwell,
Shadwell, St. George's East, and Spitalfields. Before leaving London
they
were invited to tea, for the purpose of explaining to them the final
arrangements made for their departure to and reception in Canada, each
head
of a family being called upon to sign a paper promising to pay the
amount
advanced for this passage and outfit, as soon as he should be able to do
so."NZ1881 Electoral Roll Online
