Findmypast Weekly Update

Another FMP exclusive — this week Coventry Workhouse Deaths and Baptisms.

The 8,292 deaths are from 1845 to 1943, surnames are Abbott to Youngham.

The transcripts include name, birth year, death year, death date, age, address and burial arrangements – usually “Buried by Friends or Family” with the occasional mention of Coventry Cemetery otherwise unspecified.

The 1,778 baptism transcriptions from 1853 to 1930 are for surnames Adams to Young. The information includes the name, year of birth and baptism, date of birth, mother’s name, whether legitimate or illegitimate. There is a space for the father’s name but none of the transcripts I viewed included that.

Also released this week by FMP are 66,304 United States, California Immigration Office Special Inquiry Records. The information is for Chinese immigrants arriving in San Francisco and very sparse – name, date and ship name.
