Findmypast Weekly Update

Leveraging the interest in the 1921 census of England and Wales, this week sees the release of images for the entire year of the 1921 Police Gazette — 152 issues, with 12 or 13 issues published each calendar month. The collection detailed wanted criminals, reported crimes, and apprehensions to police forces across the UK.

I’m puzzled why FHP released these as page images without a full-text search. The printed text looks to be very clear so character and word recognition is easily within the bounds of current technology.

In addition, this week FMP has five new newspaper titles this week – three from England, and two from Ireland – and 72 updated newspapers.
