Welsh Parish Registers launched for those wanting to trace their family history like actor Ruth Jones on Who Do You Think You Are?

For those keen to explore their own Welsh family history just like Ruth, Ancestry.co.uk has launched Welsh Parish Registers, 1538-1994.

The collection holds over eight million historic Welsh records, in what will, in time, become the most comprehensive collection of its type available online.

The records span 456 years, dating from 1538 all the way up to 1994 and detail baptisms, banns (the public announcement of an impending marriage), marriages and burials.

A handy tool, if you are looking for car dimensions, very comprehensive and interesting .   New car dimensions in the European market with the photo of each automobile size showing length, width and height, boot space etc

Britain from Above was a four year project aimed at conserving 95,000 of the oldest and most valuable photographs in the Aerofilms collection, those dating from 1919 to 1953. Once conserved, the images were scanned into digital format and made available on this website for the public to see. This project was made possible due to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and support from The Foyle Foundation and other donors. There are now over 95,000 images on the website. The website provides the opportunity to share and record your memories and knowledge about the places shown in the collection.

One of the aims of the project was to ensure that as wide a range of people as possible could learn about Aerofilms and to engage with the images. This was done by working with groups in local communities, using the images of their local area as inspiration for a number of projects.  Take a look at the legacy left by the project in the highlights below.
