U.K.: Lucky Leeds searchers

A few weeks ago, I wrote about cemetery records in the UK on the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain Web site> At the time, those records were in the member's-only section.

I'm happy to report that the records have been moved to the public access section and there are more available burial, marriage and census records.

JGSGB board member Louis Messik has completed the reformat of Murray Freedman's records of Leeds Marriages (5,044 records, 1855-1973), and she's now working on 22,000 Leeds Census records, which she hopes to have on line in a few days. Freedman has given permission for the records to move into the public access section.

These records are available in the Supplementary UK Database at and from the search engine in the Leeds Community page.

Additionally, 17,523 Leeds burials can now be found in the Supplementary UK Database, and also here via the Leeds Community pages, including the following Leeds cemeteries:

BHH Hilltop Cemetery (1,049)
Louis Street Cemetery (1,039)
Mariempoler (Old Central) Cemetery (81)
New BHH Cemetery (1,132)
New Briggate Cemetery (1,659)
New Farnley Cemetery (5,820)
POD Cemetery (630)
UHC Cemetery (6,113)
