Ancestry updates London vital records

Updated on Ancestry are records from the London Metropolitan Archives. London, England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-1980 now has 2,616,957 (2,616,941) records; Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906 has 6,240,093 (6,240,709) records; Marriages and Banns, 1754-1921 has 7,549,807 (7,549,376) records and, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 has 8,844,994 (8,841,248 ) records.


When Ancestry announce an update you're never sure how major. The record count in parenthesis is from when I last recorded the count. So the answer for this most recent update is nothing major at all, for most collections it's fewer records.
