FindMyPast adds to worldwide collections

FindMyPast is today officially launching its collection of Dublin Workhouses records.

Regular readers of Irish Genealogy News will know these outstanding records have been available for 10 days (see 5th May blogpost) and many of you have been finding unexpected details about your ancestors among the Admission/Discharge registers and Board of Guardians Minute Books.

It seems there's a total of 2.4million indexed entries across the two record sets. You can also browse through the Minute Books.

If your Irish ancestors headed for England or Australia, you may also be interested in the following new collections:

Nottinghamshire Baptisms 1538 and 1980
Nottinghamshire Burials 1539 to 1905
Northern Territory Birth Index 1870-1918
Northern Territory Marriage Index 1870-1913
Northern Territory Death Index 1870-1913
