Findmypast Friday: Millions of Newspaper Notices Added

  I received this information from Findmypast today:


Millions of newspaper notices added this Findmypast Friday


Findmypast adds new transcribed birth, marriage and death newspaper notices for England 

England, Newspaper Birth Notices



Over 200,000 make up this collection of transcribed newspaper birth notices, making it easier than ever to find your ancestors in black and white. Spanning across England, they have a particular focus on Lincolnshire, and also include snippets from the newspapers themselves. In addition to the birth, it’s often possible to read about parents, godparents, addresses and more.


England, Newspaper Marriage Notices


Go beyond traditional marriage records with these marriage notices. You might uncover wedding guests, gifts, and even details of what the happy couple wore. There are nearly 700,000 records in this collection with additional snippets from the original newspapers.


England, Newspaper Death Notices


The largest new collection this week contains over 1.8 million death notices. It may be possible to discover short obituaries, funeral details, occupations and residences.




Over 100,000 pages have been added to the newspaper archive this week, with one new title and 26 updated titles.
