Website update

The website was updated on the 24th July.

There are now 28,000 people in the master database with 25,071 of them online. The online presence is an increase of 400 on the previous update.

The vast majority will have come from the work carried out in adding the details of the probate indexes post 1858 tup to 1987. There are still several that I can't definintely account for. These are mainly those who died after 1939 where there is not enough information to be able to fully identify them.

The British Newspaper Archive is obviously a great help but that only goes to 1955 and from 1968 onwards the place of death and the names of the executors are not included which does not help.

If you know of a HALSTEAD post 1939 who left a will and there details are not online please let me know
