" Fellow researchers
Today I have completed an update which has 214,220 index entries from 24,415 memorials of deeds. This marvelous result derives from the continued efforts of the volunteers. We thank them all.
One of the memorials indexed in this latest update is number 183919292.
It is gigantic and I included over 1100 index entries for it. What is interesting is that there are lots of ages given for the lives in deeds for sub-letting of the big estate."
