I’m happy to share that over the past few days we’ve published several important historical record collections, consisting of 9.7 million records (exclusive to MyHeritage) from the state of Pernambuco, Brazil, and 4.7 million vital records from New Zealand.
The Brazilian records are from 3 collections: Pernambuco Births, 1800–1920, Marriages, 1800–1960, and Deaths, 1820–2017. The Births and Marriages are new collections to MyHeritage. Pernambuco Deaths was first published last year and is now updated with millions of new records. The collections contain beautiful scanned images of the original records alongside a detailed index. If your ancestors or relatives living in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil during the 19th and 20th centuries, these collections can offer exciting details about them. Read more about the exclusive historical records from Brazil in the blog post.
The New Zealand historical records are part of three new collections: New Zealand, Birth Index, 1840–1901, Marriage Index, 1840–1901, and Death Index, 1840–2021. The records in these collections are provided by the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs and are the main source of vital records in New Zealand. If you have roots in this island down under, these collections offer important details about your ancestors. Read more about the New Zealand historical records in the blog post.
We invite you to search the collections and share these exciting new updates with your audience!
