Let family history fill your time at home with this week’s brand new Findmypast records.

Amongst so much uncertainty in the world at the moment, one thing you can rely on is our commitment to bringing you new family records and opportunities to discover your past every week. Here’s what’s new to the site this Findmypast Friday.

Unique to Findmypast, these records can reveal details about the start of your relatives’ lives in Middlesex. The collection has been enhanced with over 17,000 new records from the following parishes:
