Genes Reunited upgrades collections

Genes Reunited has today launched a fully indexed Death Records facility for England and Wales. This facility means you can get immediate results that match your search criteria and, if some of your Irish ancestors died across the Irish Sea, you'll be able to quickly start tying up loose ends.

In addition, a new collection of Travel and Overseas records has been released. This contains Passenger Lists 1890-1960, Passport Applications 1851-1903 and Indian Records 1793-1933. Ireland was still part of Britain for a lot of these years so these records include a sizeable Irish contingent.

Standard members of Genes Reunited are able to access these records using PPV credits. The Death records will be automatically included within the Platinum membership package while the Travel and Overseas collection will be an additional option.
