Latest online releases to British genealogy collections

Please see below the new and updated records and collections from England, Scotland and Wales that were released by major genealogy databases in the second half of November through to 2 December. (The previous listing was on 15 November. See blogpost).

My regular listing of new and updated British collections is designed to help family historians whose Irish ancestors emigrated, temporarily or permanently, to England, Scotland or Wales.


  • Ireland and Britain, Transatlantic Migration from North America, 1858-1870. Of the 42,695 passengers noted in this index, sixty percent of the passengers were from the geographical British Isles: English (19%), Irish (20%), and Scottish (21%). The indexed names have been extracted from the collection held on FindMyPast where transcriptions of the papers can be viewed. (In searching this collection this morning I was unable to receive any results, even for those names I knew to be in the FMP collection. I assume this is a temporary glitch.)
  • Lincolnshire, Parish Registers, 1538-1990. 3,947,025 baptism, marriage, and burial records indexed.
