Friday Finds

For the last couple of years, I have been setting up posts about the new and updated collections at Ancestry, FindMyPast and FamilySearch.  From time to time, I have noticed posts on the blogs I follow about new (and not so new) records online, and I have not been keeping track of them. I’ve therefore decided to set up a post every Friday to share these posts, and to include the information about the new and updated collections on the 3 big sites as well.  The following is what I have found this week.


The following are the Recently added and updated collections at this week
