  1. Thank you for this update. It does seem that FMP are keeping their powder dry for the next week or so.
    I was on a behind the scenes tour of City of Westminster Archives yesterday where there was a lady from Ancestry beavering away scanning more name rich records for the City and its boroughs including Rate Books and WWII records.
