1939 Register of England & Wales 

Taken on 29 September 1939, this register aimed to capture details of the civilian population just as the Second World War began. It contains not only names and occupations but also full dates of birth – therefore you’ll see some records are redacted. These 65,000 new records have passed the required 100-year mark and have been opened in this latest rolling release. Findmypast holds the most up-to-date version of the 1939 Register online. 

Ireland, Licences to Keep Arms, 1832-1836 

This new collection, from a parliamentary report, includes those who were granted a licence to bear a weapon (either a firearm or a sword) by their local magistrate. The records normally include a name, their residence, brief details of the licence, and the magistrate. Be sure to check the original image for potential additional details.  


An incredible 600,000 new pages have been brought online this week, comprising of 19 new titles and 152 updated titles. 

 (The full list is too long to publish here. However, the entire laist may be found in the Findmypast Blog at: ).
