Findmypast Friday: New School and Parish Records

   I received this information from Findmypast today:


New and exclusive records across three collections added this week 

Findmypast adds thousands of school and parish records this Findmypast Friday 

National School Admissions Registers and Log-Books 1870-1914 

 New additions into this existing set cover around 10,000 records for Halifax and York in England. Now at over 9 million records, you might uncover which school your ancestor attended, details of their time there and parents’ names. 

Lincolnshire Marriages and Banns 

 Covering 10 churches in the Isle of Axholme, the new records into this set stand at nearly 40,000. You can normally find an ancestor’s residence, some occupations and even the father’s occupation. Plus, in this collection, there are two separate entries for each marriage, one for each spouse.  

Lincolnshire Monumental Inscriptions 

A further 65,636 records have been added into this collection, covering 129 churches and chapels over Lincolnshire and one in Nottinghamshire. These often give additional detail such as next of kin and the location of the burial.

  • Leicester Daily Mercury, 1874, 1882-1888, 1892-1897, 1899-1901, 1903-1909, 1912-1913, 1915-1917, 1919, 1921-1922, 1929-1930, 1932, 1934, 1937, 1942, 1944-1948, 1967 

We are deeply saddened this week by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and extend our deepest sympathies to the Royal Household at this time. 


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.
