I received this from Findmypast this morning:
Findmypast celebrate St Patrick's Week with over half a million new Irish recordsDig deeper into your Irish heritage with employment and poor law records from the Emerald Isle. Here is what's new this Findmypast Friday.
Ireland, Dublin Guinness Brewery Employees
Did your ancestor work for one of Ireland’s most iconic brands? Discover occupations, birth and death dates, spouse names and more.
Arthur Guinness established his brewery at St James's Gate, Dublin in 1759 by signing a now-defunct 9,000-year lease for £45 a year. Since then, thousands of Dubliners have worked at the famous landmark. If your relatives were among them, this collection is a must-search.
Clare Poor Law Unions Board of Guardians Minute Books
Findmypast have added over 500,000 records to this County Clare collection, a fascinating resource if you have family ties in the region.
The detailed records cover workhouses in Clare's Corofin, Ennis, Ennistymon and Kilrush Poor Law Unions. In them, you'll find information on the day-to-day running of the institutions with mentions of inmates, staff and suppliers.
Leicestershire Parish Records
Privacy rules have allowed Findmypast to release another tranche of baptism, marriage, banns and burial records from churches across Leicestershire.
As with all of their parish record collections, Findmypast have compiled a handy list showing exactly what's new and the timeframes covered.
