  I received this information from Findmypast today:


Over 200,000 unique records added this Findmypast Friday 


Lincolnshire Baptisms 

 We’ve added 216,638 new records to this existing collection, covering 1754-1812 and 269 churches and chapels across the county. Typically, you can find key biographical information for your ancestor, and often their parents’ names and the date of the baptism. 

Suffolk Marriage Index 

A further 52,387 records have been added to this set, covering 1813-1837 and over 500 churches. You’ll normally find your ancestor’s name, marital status and parish, plus that of their spouse, and the date and place of the marriage. 

National School Admissions Register 

5,709 records for Halifax, Yorkshire have been added this week, helping you uncover more about your ancestor’s early years. With these, you might find your ancestor’s address, father’s name and occupation, and even notes on their school days, such as exam results and reasons for absence.
