Question: In a small referencce in a 19th century genealogy it mentions my family was in the Domesday book.  Is this something that I can find on microfilm at NEHGS?


Answer: NEHGS does not have microfilm of the Domesday Book.  We do however have a variety of indexes and translations to the historic Domesday book from 1085 A.D. at NEHGS.  You can also browse and search this reference online from the National Archives in London at:
