Findmypast Friday: More Yorkshire Records

 I received this information from Findmypast today:


Yorkshire takes first place this Findmypast Friday 


National School Admission Registers and Log-Books 1870-1914 

 The 9,778 new records added for Halifax in Yorkshire were transcribed by volunteers at Calderdale Family History Society. These records mark the end of the society’s three-year project to digitise school records, a collection now numbering at over 127,000. The new records cover 1880 to 1923 and may include key details about your ancestor’s schooldays.


Yorkshire Baptisms 

There are 23,338 new records to explore this week from the Sheffield parishes of All Saints and Brightside. Delve into transcriptions and original images of these vital records to help your family tree flourish. 

Military Historical Society Bulletins 

Covering the years 2016 to 2022, these 1,242 new records are PDFs of original bulletins. Scanned and fully searchable, you can explore by name or by a specific issue. Details may vary, but you could uncover handy information about regimental uniforms, badges and insignias, as well as histories of regiments and even a photo or two.
