I almost forgot about FindMyPast Fridays. This week’s link is https://blog.findmypast.com/new-records-avaialble-to-2625647489.html.
There are more than 500,000 new records and newspapers articles available to search this Findmypast Friday, including:
Over 23,000 new records covering Anglican and Wesleyan baptisms in Dover, Gravesend, Higham, Nettlestead and Maidstone have been added to our collection of Kent parish baptisms.
Over 22,000 new records covering 9 Anglican parishes in Aylesford, Boxley, Higham and Nettlestead have been added to the collection and are now available to search.
Over 203,000 additional records covering the former Grange Road Cemetery in Gillingham, now a public open space, Fort Pitt Military Cemetery and the cemetery in Robin Hood Lane, Chatham have been added to the collection.
Boston Pilot Newspaper Information Wanted Ads
Did any of your Irish ancestors emigrate to the United States? Search advertisements placed in the Boston Pilot newspaper by family members and others looking for lost friends and relatives from 1831 to 1920. These records provide an insight into Irish immigration and reflect the tumultuous times that led to the Irish diaspora such as the Great Irish Famine and the United States Civil War.
1939 Register update
Over 53,000 additional ‘open’ records have been added to the 1939 Register. Since the Register was launched, Findmypast has matched nearly five million ‘closed records’ to multiple data sources to correctly confirm the date and location of death for individuals recorded.
Devon Social & Institutional Records
Over 76,000 new records have been added to our collection of Devon Social & Institutional Records. Search this extraordinarily rich set of records to find paupers and vagrants, apprentices, peddlers and tradesmen. Find out if they got married, were vaccinated against smallpox or got Christmas presents while their father was fighting WW1. Explore more than two centuries of social history to find rare details of the lives of ordinary people.
British & Irish Newspaper update
Over 119,672 new pages have been added to our collection of historical British & Irish newspapers this week. We have updates to two of our existing titles, Wexford publication the New Ross Standard, and Reach plc (Trinity Mirror) title the Cheshire Observer.
