FindMyPast adds 132,000 records to two of its Irish collections

FindMyPast has updated two of its collections with a total of 132,920 records. Exactly how and where these additional records have been discovered is not explained in today's FindMyPast Friday blogpost, so I'm at a loss as to where they have come from. Redigitisation? Extra pages from the indexed sources being located? I don't know, but the second option is hardly likely since the source documents were published in 1890.

The collections are already widely available online; in the absence of any explanation as to what might set the FindMyPast versions apart, I'll just leave it here.

They are as follows:

Ireland, Diocese Of Dublin Marriage Licences, 1638-1858 (98,470 records added)

Ireland, Diocese Of Dublin Wills and Grants, 1270-1858 (34,450 records added)
