Findmypast Friday: Two New and Exclusive Record Collections Added

  I received this information from Findmypast today:


Two brand new and exclusive record collections added this Findmypast Friday 

Civil Service Commission Appointments, Promotions and Transfers 1871-1942 

 Spanning 71 years, these 872,439 records cover the British Civil Service, from postal workers, prison workers, the admiralty and more. You might find an ancestor’s name, age, occupation, plus details on their appointment, transfer, promotion or certification.


Second World War Civilian Casualties In Britain 1940-1945 

This collection comes from multiple sources and includes 64,339 records. It is made up of mostly civilian casualties during the Second World War, in addition to 4,000 servicemen who died on the home front during enemy action. You may find an exact address, standard biographical detail, and even the type of enemy action.  


 After months of incredible work, Findmypast’s newspaper scanners are taking a well-deserved break this week.


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.
