Surry (Surrey) Wills website
« on: Monday 13 August 18 12:02 BST (UK) »
Hi

Has the Surrey Wills website closed, or just moved to a new home?

rootsweb.com/~engsurry

I get an 'access forbidden' message when I try to access it.

Any info welcome.

Thanks,

Joy

That link just takes me to Ancestry.

Sites hosted by RootsWeb have been offline for quite some time but they're starting to come back now. It seems that site owners/managers need to ask to have them restored - or at least the ones that ask get it done first. And until sites are restored, old links just go to an Ancestry page.

More info in their blog at http://rootsweb.blog/

I'm not sure how up to date it is, but there's a list of restored sites at https://home.rootsweb.com/sites/siteDirectory

Meanwhile there's an archived version of the Surrey Wills site at https://web.archive.org/web/20170501074432/http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com:80/~engsurry/
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Hi and many thanks for your replies.

The archived site is useful but I was also hoping to donate further transcriptions.

I'll just wait until it comes back online.
