Website Updated 16 March 2016

The Uridge, Euridge website was updated today Wednesday 16 March 2016.

This update again focuses on Family Chart 4, the descendants and their spouses of Philip & Sarah Uridge née Barton, who emigrated to America in 1851, together with their six children William, Sarah, Philip, Mary, George, and Elizabeth. The family settled in Michigan. 

Also included is information relating to the EURIDGE, and URIDGE UK-based families that were recorded in the recently released The 1939 Register.
The 1939 Register, taken on 29 September 1939, provides a snapshot of the civilian population of England and Wales just after the outbreak of the Second World War. The records were used to produce up-to-date population statistics and identification cards and, once rationing was introduced in January 1940, to facilitate the issuing of ration cards. Information in the Register was also used to administer conscription, and to monitor and control the movement of the population caused by military mobilisation and mass evacuation. Further information is available at The National Archives website.

Currently, 120+ records have been found in The 1939 Register. Over the course of the next few months, it is hoped that this information will be included in the narratives.

In the meantime, since the last website update on 1 January 2016, 123 existing narratives have been changed, and 15 new narratives have been added. There is now a total of 2,862 detailed narratives available on the website. However, overall in the URIDGE, EURIDGE database there is now 4,074 (54 new) people, including living people.

A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.
