Online Records

Online Records

There are a huge variety of records available online.  But there are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. No one website has it all – you will need to hunt around

  2. Not everything is online – see the Books & Archives section

  3. Sometimes only the ‘index’ is online – that is a database of limited details and no images

  4. Not all records survive – disinterest, carelessness and accidents means that records were not always kept.

  5. Not all websites are available┬áto everyone – some are only accessible to universities.
