1850 Census Added to Collections
The 1850 Census has now been added to the Society Collections! There are 131 Individuals listed which is all known Capertons in the 1850 Census. Additionally the original source doument is linked to every listing along with an extraction of that listing. As an added bonus The Henry number from Bernards book "The Caperton Family" has also been added to over 95% of the entries.
The Society now has a new home! The Caperton Society has been hosted by White Rose Web Design at no cost to us for over 12 years now and I cannot thank them enough for their hospitality! they have been marvelous. The owner however, after nearly 25 years in the business, (yes the internet has really been around that long!) is retiring and moving on to a new adventure. This initially posed a challenge as I had gotten quite used to White Rose 'taking care of business' as it were. After some significant research we now have a new home which, while no longer free, is very reasonable and should be a long-term solution whch again the owner of White Rose was fantastic in assisting with the decision making process! Once the move was sorted out, I began creating a new website that would be easier for me to manage and update.
New in the UK Records Collections are three new databases: UK Births; UK Marriages; and UK Deaths. As of now the first 9 records have been uploaded and are available. Actual images of the documents are soon to follow. The exciting part of these records is how far back they reach. There are UK records uploaded that date back to the 16oo's !!!
