USEFUL U.K. WEB RESOURCES

Katie Jaeger writes: "Here are some interesting web resources from
the U.K.:  First, a website that gives geographical surname
distribution maps.  You key a surname into the search engine, and
choose either 1881 or 1998, and get a map of England separated into

Second is the book search on the British Google...
google.co.uk. It operates just like the U.S. Google book
search: From the home page, click "more" then choose "book search."
When the new search bar pops up, key in your search term - I keyed in
"medal" - and then under the search bar, I had a choice of "all books"
or "full view books" (meaning full text books).  I chose "full view
books" and a wonderful array of titles popped up, all 100% searchable.
Not only British books are included: I found the catalog of the ANS
international medal exhibition of 1910, for example."
