A NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR HGS
HGS are delighted to announce a new partnership with well-known Genealogy company ‘The Genealogist’ (S& N).
All the remaining data from our parish register transcripts for Hampshire, will now be online with The Genealogist (S & N) and FHS-online.
FHS-online has been developed together with S & N to offer Family History Societies the ability publish their data online in addition to, or as an alternative to, FindmyPast and/or Ancestry.co.uk. The site shows what is available from the relevant society, plus the subscription rate they have set to access the data.
From Wednesday 30th November the NEW on-line records available are:
Hampshire Baptisms 1538-1751, 1842-1874
Hampshire Marriages: 1438-1753
Hampshire Burials 1842-1865
HGS have worked with, and had an excellent relationship with, The Genealogist (S & N) for over 20 years; they are a British Company and were able to offer us an excellent and fair contract. HGS will also receive 100% of the income from the searches of Hampshire records on FHS-online.co.uk. The advantage of these partnerships is that Family History Societies can be helped to increase their funds whilst at the same time making their records available to many more researchers.
The Hampshire records that are currently on-line at FindmyPast will also remain there, so there is now a complete ON-LINE coverage of ALL HGS transcripts of Hampshire Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, which are taken from the original parish registers. The records still on Findmypast are:
Hampshire Baptisms: 1752-1841
Hampshire Marriages: 1754-1837
Hampshire Burials: 1400-1841
This means that there is now a complete online coverage available of all HGS parish record transcripts.
This new enterprise will broaden the availability of our records and will be of great benefit to those family history researchers who like and need online access to genealogical records.
For those researchers who do not have online access, we will still continue to offer our complete data on CDs. These are available to buy by post, through our website and from our HGS Bookstall at Family History Events, where a ‘look-up’ service is also offered. The data is also available at our Research Room.
It is possible that in the future an enhanced subscription to HGS will include access to the Hampshire data available on FHS-online for a period of time, so please do keep checking our website for any further announcements.
