Not sure if this is news or if I'm the last person to find out about it, but try using Google's advanced search to search the website www.ebooksread.com for, say, a surname and town from your tree and see what comes up. I've found they have a book of Surrey marriage licence allegations on there, for instance.

Thanks.........I haven't seen that site. I do love Google Books though. I've found some great records for Lancashire there.

Also "The Gentleman's Magazine" (which I admit sounded a bit like Playboy...lol) is great for births, deaths, etc.

How do you get into advance search Kite please ???

When you're on the main Google page, just click on "Advanced Search" which is on the right of the box that you type in.
