Findmypast Adds Thousands of New Records From the East and South East of England
The following is an announcement written by Findmypast:
Take your research further with Findmypast. Along with a host of new historical newspapers, this week’s Findmypast Friday features updates to parish baptisms, banns, marriages, burials and monumental inscriptions covering Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Essex.
Search over 9,000 new additions covering 1937 to discover your ancestor’s birth place, parents’ names and baptism date.
Norfolk Baptisms are a collection of parish records from the Norfolk Record Office, which have been digitised and indexed. Norfolk’s parish registers are available to search by name, parish and parents’ names. By searching only your ancestor’s parents’ names, you can discover your ancestor’s siblings and extend your family tree further.
Determine when, where and to whom your ancestor was married as well as their residence and father’s name with over 16,000 new records from 1921.
In images of later registers, you can see your ancestors’ signature. Some images reveal even further details about the marriage, such as, who performed the ceremony, fathers’ occupations, the names of witnesses and the bride’s surname.
Discover the final resting place of your Norfolk ancestors along with their age at death and the date of their burial in the latest update to this useful collection.
Many of our ancestors moved throughout their lives for different reasons like work and family. Death records will show where they were living at the end of their lives and this may indicate where their families resided.

Lincolnshire Monumental Inscriptions
This record set is packed with rich detail for the Lincolnshire branches of your family tree. We’ve added over 36,500 new records.
These records include 295 parish churchyards and burial grounds and were transcribed by the volunteers of the Lincolnshire Family History Society. As well as revealing when and where your ancestor was laid to rest, many records will include additional details such as their age at death and the names of additional relatives such as parents and spouses.
If your ancestor was laid to rest in Essex, over 22,000 new records could reveal vital information on their lives and deaths.
These records have been compiled from engravings found on tombstones and other memorials in the churches and churchyards of Essex. They represent significant evidence for your family history research and can often provide additional information outside of death dates. You will find inscriptions from various denominations such as Anglican, Roman Catholic, Quaker, and non-conformist, as well as community and war memorials.
