England's Society of Genealogists is about to make researching your British ancestry a whole lot easier. From Charles Dickens' 1836 marriage license (shown at left) to family group sheets dating back to the 14th century, the society's valuable collections of parish registers, censuses and more will soon be available to search online on a pay-per-view basis. Origins.net <www.origins.net>, which already has a similar arrangement with the General Register Office of Scotland, is working with Society members to decipher and digitize millions of records, including:

• Apprentices of Great Britain series, 1710-1774
