Domesday Book goes online

Back in the days when databases were made from sepia ink and vellum, the most important database for any Englishman was the Domesday (Doomsday) book, commissioned nearly a thousand years ago as a complete census of England. 

It's amazing that this priceless database has now been digitized is now searchable online.

As an amateur genealogist, I've spent entire days in the LDS library in Salt Lake City studying the Domesday book reprints, and it is fascinating reading. 

The Doomsday book is a great place to search for English surname origins.  Last names were just becoming popular in the 11th century, and peoples last names were often noted in relation to their job (John the Lavender "Laundryman" became John Lavender), and where a person lived often became their last name (William de Burleston became William Burleston).

I know just enough French and middle English to hack through the Doomsday book, and it's an amazing journey to another world.  See Domesday books and CDs.
