Compared to the giants of commercial genealogy, Ancestry, Findmypast and MyHeritage, TheGenealogist takes the road less travelled.
What’s exclusive to TheGenealogist? National Tithe Map Collection, 1910 (Lloyd George) Survey and, a Map Explorer.
Tithe records allow researchers to find land that was both owned or occupied by ancestors in the period 1837 to 1850s with some additional, altered apportionments in later years when the property was sold or divided. It was not just the wealthy landowners who are recorded in the tithe records but also those tenants who may have farmed a small plot or lived in a cottage.
A recent addition to Map Explore is Tithe Maps for Cornwall, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire and Worcestershire. There are over half a million new Tithe Plots.
