When information arrived in an email from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage about 359 million additions in a French Historical Records collection I took a quick look for a third cousin twice removed. He was supposed to have been born in France. While I didn’t find him I noticed the records shown weren’t all French; they were in French.
The collection includes 58,114 births/baptisms, 211,983 marriages and 211,983 deaths/burials in Canada. While mostly for Quebec I spotted entries for Atlantic Canada too. There were also US events from Louisiana, Read more about the collection in this MyHeritage blog post.
Daniel also mentioned updates to Sweden, Household Examination Books, 1800–1947 with 13.2 million records added, and to Germany, North Rhine Westphalia (Arnsberg and Münster) Death Index, 1874–1938 with 4.8 million records added.
