Findmypast Friday Additions

Over 100,000 previously-redacted records are added to the Findmypast version of the 1939 Register for England and Wales. Records get opened as people die or they reach their 100th birthday. There are now 42,137,400 records available.

Findmypast now has 300,000 photos from the vast archive of The Francis Frith Collection, the majority taken in Great Britain and Ireland. Why, you may well ask, would you want to access the collection through FMP rather than directly at FMP explains “Having found your ancestor in documents such as census returns and birth, marriage and death records, it is now possible to quickly view images of the places they would have grown up in. There is a link back from each record on Findmypast to the same record on the main Francis Frith website, and options to buy high-quality prints and other items.”
