Another Friday, another treat of fresh family history records on Findmypast. Here's everything you need to know about what's new.
We’ve added over 3.4 million new records to this useful Family History Federation collection and you won’t find them elsewhere online.

Monumental inscriptions can reveal fascinating facts about your ancestors’ lives and deaths. On Findmypast, you’ll find an extensive collection from England, Scotland, Wales, and Australia.
These unique records reveal names, ranks and death details of British Army soldiers stationed in the West Indies in the early 19th century.
The 1st Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Foot was the predecessor of the Royal Scots and it appears that many of the men listed in the records hail from Scotland.
