Friday Finds 31 August 2018

Each Friday, I share the new and updated collections from Ancestry, FindMyPast, FamilySearch, as well as links to details about other new, and not so new, records and tools. Over the month of August, I haven’t felt like blogging, so this week’s Friday Finds post is longer than usual, since my last post was on the 3 August.
