I did not see anything last night on FindMyPast. Here’s this week’s FindMyPast Fridays Surrey parish registers join the largest collection online:    https://www.findmypast.com/blog/new/surrey-parish-records.

Findmypast is home the to the largest collection of UK parish records anywhere online. And that collection just got even bigger.

If you’ve got roots in Surrey, you’re in for a treat this week. We’ve just released new Surrey church records and more.

The best place to start with the new Surrey Collection is the baptism records. Over 660,000 of them from across the county have been added. Each entry includes a transcript, with the most important information for your family tree, and a digitized copy of the original document, held by Surrey County Council.

Wondering if your relatives’ local church is included? Check the updated parish lists for more information.

Once you’ve started to pinpoint your family’s baptism records in Surrey, it’s time to find more milestones – their marriage records. Over 390,000 new Surrey marriage records have been released.

Marriage registers are essential for growing your family tree. Just one record can reveal multiple generations of family members. As well as the betrothed couple’s names, ages and occupations, you can expect to find their fathers’ names and occupations, and the names of any witnesses.

The Surrey Collection is rounded off with brand new burial records from parishes across the county, over 440,000 of them. Amongst the records, we discovered Lewis Caroll’s 1898 register.

The Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland author is buried in Guildford, St Mary and is listed under his real name, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.

You also have the option to browse the entire collection of Surrey parish registers page-by-page. Browsing the records can be a handy back-up if your name search proves fruitless.

The British Newspaper Collection has expanded to the Commonwealth this week with the addition of three Canadian newspapers. We’ve also added a local Worcestershire publication. Here are the details of the latest arrivals:

Newspapers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our Canadian family records. Have you delved into our extensive Canadian censuses yet?

As well the addition of new papers, we continue to bolster others with more year coverage;

Have you found family in this week’s record releases? We’d love to hear about your discoveries over on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
