The National Library have got a new search page - it is so much easier.

If you agree send them a comment and lets hope it stays that way.

Apparently the Marriage Bonds are still in there, but I can`t find the search  page and if I did it would probably have changed .

Thank you so much for this search link. The NLW has become virtually incomprehensible, without this I just wouldn't be able to find any Wills at all!
Much appreciated
Cheers

The functionality of the "Wills" search screen hasn't changed - the changes are "cosmetic".

Re.marriage bonds see  https://www.llgc.org.uk/index.php?id=6843

Tab down to "How do I search for marriage bonds"
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

Well after trying to find them from the instructions given on the link I gave up.

How do I search for Marriage Bonds?
Following user feedback, we are currently investigating the possibility of creating a bespoke search form for the marriage bonds collection.
Obviously this hasn`t been sorted as yet


For the moment, to search for the marriage bonds:
1.Enter your search term in the Catalogue  "John Jones eg"
]
2.Select 'In the Library' from the drop down to the right of your search term
3.Click Search
4.In the left column under 'Collections' select 'More Options'
I got as far as this and could find  no column for marriage bonds.
5.Place a tick in the 'Include' column for 'Marriage Bonds'   There isn`t one I could see

6.Click on the red 'Continue' button
7.The box will close and the results will include only marriage bonds

 So that didn`t succeed.

I then tried this but just as useless.

https://goo.gl/nd3sbo

This link will take you to the Marriage  Bonds . All 76,179 of them . ::)

All I can see is that you can “sort by” Relevance
  Date-newest
  Popularity
  Author
 Title

If you sort by title then you get names alphabetically from all dioceses.
As far as I can work out   it will take for ever and a day to trawl through all those in the hope of finding the one you are searching for.

If anyone else has ideas, please let us know
