This week’s genealogy updates for England, Scotland and Wales


Below is a summary of new and updated family history record collections for England, Scotland and Wales released by the major genealogy databases over the last week (for the previous summary, see 6 April blogpost).

This regular summary of releases and updates relating to 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. Where two figures are given, the first is the number of additions, the second is the new total.

Please note that I don’t usually include updates of fewer than 1,000 records.
