FMP Stuff + Scotland + Ireland + More!

FindMyPast have released a new record set pertaining to the city of Sheffield - see here.

FMP have also made the following announcement: you can now see a list of all the records you’ve ever viewed on since Dec 2010. Just sign in to your account on the site and click the ‘my saved records’ tab at the top of the page to view and organise your records. You can also record how good a match you think the record is with the ancestor you're looking for by clicking on one of the pencil icons.

Users of the FamilySearch website may have noticed the appearance of the 1861 & 1871 Census indexes for Scotland to go with the earlier additions of the 1841 & 1851 efforts. Access via this link (and scroll down) or, indeed, this link. Note that they are merely indexes - you will have to the Scotland's People website or FindMyPast for more detail.
