I don't normally do the salesman thingy, but I thought I'd point out why buying a CD when you're looking for a relative in any particular parish, especially if you are sure they should be there, but haven't found them, is a good idea. Take a look at these two entries recently transcribed by Jim; obviously the same family, but the surname is so very different! Need I say more! If you did a search on one of the names, which ever it should be, you wouldn't get the other, but purchase the CD and voila!

Family historians might like to know that there's a petition currently running to save the Cleveland Street Workhouse (near the Telecom Tower) built in 1775, and still serving sick Londoners until 2006 when it was the Outpatients' Dept of the Middlesex Hospital. Over 500 people slept there every night, so loads of us must have had relatives there... plus it was a maternity hospital and children's hospital at various times in its long history. Developers with no regard to history want to smash the place down, and erect a huge block of posh housing, but locals say its a good sturdy building, it belongs where it is, and with a bit of imagination could be turned to other uses. Researching the street, I have just discovered that Dickens lived there, so the workhouse is likely to be the inspiration for Oliver Twist!! Please sign up, and/or email the planners! For details go to www.workhouse.org and follow the links! Thank you!
