Findmypast: New Records Every Week
Regularly, every week, I get an email notice from Findmypast.com about new records added to their vast online collection. This week the notice showed an addition of well over half a million records. According to the weekly notices, this month, March 2018, Findmypast.com has added a total of 10,305,727 new records. These records are mostly either in the British Isles, Ireland or the United States. One notable addition of over 4 million records was the Catholic records from New York, Chicago, and Baltimore.
These additions highlight the need for researchers to be aware of all the records going online. There are so many, it is likely that some of your own ancestors will be included in the new records.
