More Genealogical Gems From The Recently Released Records of the British Library Now Online

These two images are a snapshot of the medical records of two separate Sarkies family members who went on to have very successful careers as a surgeons. Here you can see the letter of character recommendation as written by the Armenian Church Calcutta, and a rare view of an original Armenian baptism certificate issued from the same church.

The records are full of thousands of interesting and useful pieces of information, you just need to be patient and interrogate them with an open mind. The search engine isn't as good as Ancestry, so to some extent you must use creative thinking to find what you are after.

There are approximately 2.5 million records from the British Library now on line - Armenian ancestry and records have never looked so good.
