    I stand to be corrected but Ancestry seem to have loaded a lot more parish registers from St Giles than were previously available.

    I've just found a baptism that I've been looking for for over forty years and I'm feeling rather chuffed!

    From a recent Anc email

    We've added thousands of new London records this month, as part of our ongoing partnership with London Metropolitan Archives.

    Jolly good. The St Giles collection is particularly valuable as it was one of the most populous parishes in London in the 19th century.

    The parish registers were kept in the church until they were transferred to London Metropolitan Archives in 2014. Odd privately made transcriptions (and some films) have been available over the years but I never thought I'd have easy access to so many of the registers in my lifetime.

    It also says births/baptism to 1914 (I found my mum's :)) and Banns/ marriages to 1930, so worth a check for anyone with London ancestors.
