National Archives UK - new website just launched

If you have ancestors from the United Kingdom (or from Britain's former colonies) it is well worth taking a look at the National Archives in the UK freshly launched website. You can search and browse through a huge selection of digitised images, online exhibitions and archival records including records relating to the armed services, World War I, wills and probate, maps, politics, the census, the Domesday book... even UFOs. While the bulk of the records held by the National Archives relate to the United Kingdom, there are also many records and digitised content from Britain's former colonies, including Australia. Take a look, but beware: there is so much to see and the site is so inviting you may spend far longer exploring than you intended!
