MBrockway Posted 15 February , 2018 Share Posted 15 February , 2018 No - not a comment on a fading fashion for hipster chinwear ... An afternoon spent trying to chase down an image for the MIC for BEARD, 4607, Thomas Edward, Rifle Brigade, has revealed that there is a contiguous block of 833 MIC's in the National Archive catalogue that are missing from Ancestry's equivalent. The missing records run ... WO 372/2/58701 - 'BEARD, John Stanley Coombe' WO 372/2/58702 - 'BEARD, James T' .. WO 372/2/59534 - 'BEARDSALL, Benjamin' WO 372/2/59535 - 'BEARDSALL, Bernard L' ... with the first and last present on both, but the intervening 833 records only present on TNA. So if you're looking for an MIC for another 'BEARD' or similar surname on Ancestry, be aware of this gap. Note also that the WO 372 data is not 100% in Surname/Forename sequence - as demonstrated by James T Beard following after John Stanley Coombe Beard. Anyone else spotted similar MIC blocks missing on Ancestry? Life's never easy eh? Mark Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
