Findmypast Friday: Quaker Deaths, Dorset Inscriptions, and Newspapers

I received this from Findmypast today:


Even more family history records added this Findmypast Friday

Findmypast add a brand-new Quaker record set in their weekly record release, plus monumental inscriptions

Quaker Deaths 1810-1918

This new collection from the Friends Historical Society Dublin covers 27,000 transcripts and images. They contain key biographical details, and for the more notable names, you may find obituaries and even portraits. The records go beyond Britain, with some from Madagascar, Fiji and New Zealand.

Dorset Monumental Inscriptions

Nearly 15,000 new transcripts have been added into this existing collection, with some dating back to 1294. The records contain final dedications, death year, and sometimes notes and next of kin. These have been provided by Somerset & Dorset Family History Society.


Nearly 75,000 pages have been added to Findmypast’s growing newspaper archive this week, covering four regional titles and one international title.

Updated titles:


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.
