Findmypast Friday: Records from India to Ireland and beyond

 I received this information from Findmypast today:


Records from India to Ireland and beyond added this Findmypast Friday  

Findmypast adds a mix of newspapers, parish records and Merchant Navy records this week 

Britain, Merchant Seamen, 1918-1941 

 Nearly 5,000 records have been added into this existing collection, known for its biographical detail, physical descriptions, and often photographs. It includes British merchant seamen stationed all over the world. 

British India Office: Births & Baptisms and Marriages 

Even more records have been added into these two existing collections, where you could uncover if your ancestor married in British India, or had children there. It’s also possible to find residences and professions. 

Ireland Newspaper Notices: Births, Marriages and Deaths 

Brand new to Findmypast this week with additional images, these records are snippets of life events from three Irish newspapers. You can explore around 42,000 births, 30,000 marriages, and 66,000 deaths. Be sure to check the original for more detail.
