It’s Friday and for family history fans that means one thing: brand new Findmypast Friday releases. Here’s what’s new to the site this week.

Over 7,000 images have been added covering a variety of PERSI publications, perfect for fleshing out family stories. The new periodical titles that have been added are:

  • Vermont Quarterly Gazetteer: A Historical Magazine / Bound With New Title: Vermont Historical Gazetteer
  • Recherches Historiques
  • Cambridge Historical Society Publications/proceedings
  • Archivium Hibernicum / Irish Historical Records
  • Queen City Heritage / Ohio Valley History
  • Connecticut Historical Society Collections

Simply filter by periodical to get to the latest additions.

The power of PERSI shouldn’t be underestimated. It can add copious color and context to your family research. Here’s how.

We’re launching this brand new collection with records from the province of Prince Edward Island. More will be added from across Canada over the coming months.

The eclectic mix of five directories cover the late 19th century from 1880 to 1899. The titles included are:

  • Frederick’s Prince Edward Island Directory
  • McMillian’s Agricultural and Nautical Almanac
  • McMullan’s Almanac
  • Teare’s Directory & Hand Book Of The Province of Prince Edward Island
  • The Prince Edward Island Almanac

Directories and almanacs provide a window into the past, revealing what it would have been like for your ancestors in their community at the time. They’re also handy when it comes to tracing house history.

We’ve enhanced this collection with over 7,000 new and exclusive records. Brought online in partnership with the Society of Genealogists, the latest additions include both a transcript with all the vital details about your family members and an image of the original record. These newest updates cover surnames beginning with the letters J and K.

This ever-expanding collection includes entries of births, marriages, divorces, and deaths in the British Raj between 1664 and 1961. They’ll help you learn more about relatives who lived and worked in the thriving subcontinent generations ago. If your family has roots in British India, be sure to also explore our exclusive British India Office and East India Company records from the British Library.

Family from ‘God’s Own County’? Find their final resting places with over 10,000 additional memorial inscriptions. These new updates come from Calderdale Family History Society and cover the following parishes:

  • Barkisland, Halifax
  • Booth, Halifax
  • Clifton, Brighouse
  • Cragg Vale
  • Rastrick, Brighouse
  • Southowram, Halifax

Check our extensive list for details of the other 150-plus Yorkshire parishes covered in this exclusive collection.

Memorial inscriptions can reveal important details for your family tree. In these records, you’ll get names, birth and death years and memorial locations.

Where will your past take you in this week’s new releases? We’d love to hear about your discoveries on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. And if you need a helping hand, why not ask a question in the Findmypast Forum, our thriving online community? There are plenty of like-minded family detectives ready and willing to help.
