The Ge­neal­o­gist adds Change of Names Data­base

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

An in­dex of his­toric name changes in Bri­tain has been added to the­ge­neal­o­gist.co.uk. The Change of Names Data­base records changes listed in sources in­clud­ing pri­vate Acts of Par­lia­ment; royal li­cences in the Lon­don and Dublin Gazettes; news­pa­per notices; the reg­is­ters of the Lord Lyon, which cover Scotland; and pri­vate in­for­ma­tion. Much of the data comes from WPW Phillimore’s An In­dex to Changes of Name, which is avail­able for free on archive.org, but The­Ge­neal­o­gist has made it search­able.
