The Beaumont Family Web site Projects page

Introduction

This list is an initial proposed list of projects that we hope to manage from this web site. This list will focus on UK records as we are most familiar with those. Other countries projects will follow.

Bibliographic collection.

We look for references to Beaumonts in various Library catalogues and will  publish the entries from the Family History Library catalog at www.familysearch.org and the Library of Congress.

Online Publishing

Republish books (or in some cases pages from them) in the public domain  related to Beaumonts that appear in the Bibliographic collection. The first book has been scanned and is available on this site. It is a 333 page book published around 1929 with, as far as we can tell, only two copies submitted to libraries. Go to The Beaumonts in History Download page.

 Here are the details from the Library of Congress:-

Extractions from online publishing would involve entry of all name references into databases with page numbers that they appear on.

Census Extracts

The UK 1881 census is the prime candidate for initial Beaumont indexing. We still need to find out what is allowed in terms of extraction and publishing.

Civil Registration Summaries

As the FreeBMD project progresses we will be publishing counts of Beaumonts by quarter by registration district.
