Ancestry gets London Gazette browse files

The London Gazette is a treasure house of notices on military appointments and promotions, deceased people’s estates, bankruptcies, medals and honours. Ancestry has added browse files of this government publication, between 1825 and 1962, albeit with random gaps in this collection. This is likely a prelude to the files becoming computer searchable and integrated into the billion of records in Ancestry's collections.
In the meantime there is perfectly serviceable access to the London, Edinburgh and Belfast gazettes at www.gazettes-online.co.uk/.

The London Gazette Online is completely free and searchable by years and names. They ask you to register to find out who is using their service, and they give you a password by email, but there is no charge at all.
