Findmypast Friday

Nearly a million new records added this Findmypast Friday 

This week’s Findmypast Friday adds records for Herefordshire and the City of York.

City of York Trade Directories, 1781-1955 

This new collection of 720,000 records can provide insight into what an ancestor did for a living. Including original images, these are particularly handy for house history and adding more colour to an ancestor’s life. 

Herefordshire Marriages 

A further 220,000 records have been added into this record set, provided by Hereford Family History Society and exclusive to Findmypast. The collection as a whole spans 1538-1838, covers 470 parishes and is a great resource for uncovering biographical details.
