Findmypast Friday: Over 100,000 New Records

   I received this information from Findmypast today:


Over 100,000 new records added this Findmypast Friday 

Lancashire, Barrow-in-Furness Shipbuilding & Engineering Employees 

Travel back to the early 20th century with this brand-new collection, covering shipbuilding and engineers from Lancashire. These 96,374 records normally give a name, date of birth, the department worked in, address, and duration of work. They also include around 1,300 female employees

from the First World War period.  

United Kingdom, Commemorative Plaques 

Discover famous faces and great deeds in this second new collection of the week. These 12,785 commemorative plaques remember figures like Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Pankhurst, and even Hodge, the feline friend of Samuel Johnson. Depending on the plaque, you may find a name, date of birth, date of death and address. 


Findmypast’s newspaper publishing is taking a short break this week, as they undertake essential maintenance in preparation for even more upcoming rich newspaper content.  


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.
