FindMypast has launched 100 in 100, a plan to release 100 record sets in the next 100 days.

This ambitious initiative will see millions of new records, many of them exclusive to FindMyPast, newly available to subscribers. Among them will be military, census, parish and civil records, and no doubt many other types of collections.

Irish records will feature in the mix.

The first upload brings nearly 50,000 records across eight British WW1 Pals Regiments collections, as follows:
  • Birmingham Pals 1914-1918
  • Birmingham Employers Roll of Honour 1914-1918
  • 1st Bradford Pals (16th West Yorkshire Regiment)
  • Edinburgh Pals (15th and 16th Royal Scots Regiment)
  • Glasgow Pals 1914-1918
  • Liverpool Pals (17th, 18th, 19th and 20th King's Liverpool Regiment)
  • Salford Pals (15th, 16th, 19th and 20th Lancashire Fusiliers)
  • Southdown Battalions (11th, 12th and 13th Royal Sussex)
