Find My Past Fridays 5 Oct 2018

Each Friday, I was sharing 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 and September, I haven’t felt like blogging, so my last post was on the 31 August.  Rather than preparing one long post, I have decided to focus today on the Find My Past Fridays.
