The Essex Record Office have today relaunched their online catalogue. Formerly called SEAX it is now called Essex Archives Online and still includes the former Essex Ancestors part of the website. The website works much the same as the old one, but images that were previously free to view still remain free but now require registration first before veiwing. The parish registers and wills still require subscription payment.
It seems to me that the main reason for the relaunch is to make it mobile friendly. This all well and good, but for those with desktops it now means far more scrolling. Before you could view 20 entries at once it is ow only 7 or so.
