We’ll be creating individual listings for most of these resources but are using Dorset, UK Online Genealogy Records as a holding page until each individual listing is created. If you are an agency or business who owns one of these sites, please claim this page and we’ll contact you and we’ll set you up with your own listing for your site. 

If you have another favorite Dorset, UK resource, please feel free to add it in the comments and we’ll add it to our site.

Thanks for visiting!
