Findmypast Friday: New Baptisms, Probate Indexes and Newspaper Pages

  I received this information from Findmypast today:


Findmypast Friday: new baptisms, probate indexes and newspaper pages

Essex Baptisms

Over 169,000 new transcripts have been added to Essex baptisms. Unique to Findmypast, these new additions, covering a wide range of parishes and date ranges, will reveal your ancestor’s date and location of birth, date and location of baptism, residence, parents’ names and father’s occupation.


See Findmypast’s Essex parish list for details of the new arrivals, along with locations and years covered across the entire collection.

Devon Baptisms

Findmypast’s Devon collection continues to grow with over 45,000 Methodist baptism records. These new additions cover 73 churches and span from 1837-1919.


The collection now contains over 2.7 million records spanning 400 years of the maritime county’s history.


Berkshire Probate Index

Discover details of your Berkshire ancestors in new probate records dating all the way back 1480.

Findmypast parish records

The index will reveal the year of probate, the type of document surviving, its archive reference (for ordering copies of original documents from the Berkshire Record Office) and usually an ancestor’s occupation and residence.


This week, Findmypast have added over 47,000 additional pages to Leicester Evening Mailcovering 1929-1943.


Disclosure: I have a complimentary subscription to Findmypast, and have accepted meals and services from Findmypast, as a Findmypast Ambassador. This has not affected my objectivity relative to Findmypast and its products.
