In the last few weeks, FindMyPast UK has added 3 million London records, 2 million records from East Kent and more than 650,000 new pages to their collection of local British newspapers. The latter, which now totals 6.5 million pages spanning 1710 to 1963, does not appear to include any Irish publications.

The company says it is also intending to add a cool 15 million Yorkshire parish baptism, marriage and burial records 'shortly'. It says these records have never been online before and this development is due to an association with the Yorkshire Digitisation Consortium, which comprises six Yorkshire archives.

Spanning the years from 1538 into the 20th century, these records will cover parish church registers and bishops' transcripts from most of Yorkshire and will include images of the registers, as well as transcripts.
