Latest new and updated 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 since 14 December. It's not been quite as quiet as you might have expected for the turn of the year, has it?! (The previous listing was on 13 December, see blogpost).

My regular listing of new and updated British collections is designed to help family historians whose Irish ancestors migrated, temporarily or permanently, to England, Scotland or Wales. By default, it will also be useful to anyone carrying out research in those three nations, regardless of the origin of their ancestors.

The figures in parenthesis in the New Collections section are the numbers of records/images in the new record set.

Unless otherwise stated, the figures in parenthesis in the Updated Collections section reflect the number of records added to the collection in the recent update. In some instances, the supplier has not made this figure available.
