The following is an announcement from Origins.net:
The books Burke's Peerage & Baronetage and Burke's Landed Gentry have, for 175 years, recorded the genealogies of the UK and Ireland's titled and landed families.
Often referred to as 'the aristocracy bible,' Burke's is without comparison the genealogical reference to the county's influential figures and families. Visitors to Burke's can also search over 4,000 coats of arms and keep up to date with family history articles by accessing the ATAVUS e-magazine available to all subscribers.
Users can search over 7000 genealogical records containing 1 million plus names from various Burke's publications. Each record contains the complete genealogy of the family name and some records go back over 1,000 years. The result is a searchable database listing the individuals and families who not only shaped the history and evolution of this country but many others around the World.
