FamilySearch: Irish prison indexes and Durham BTs

Family Search (www.familysearch.org) has added a series of indexes for the Irish prison index records from 1790-1924 recently released on FindmyPast Ireland (www.findmypast.ie). The information given provides a brief summary of the offence, year of conviction and more, but the full record on FindmyPast will be considerably more detailed. Having said that, the index has just flagged up a record that I missed when using the FMP site, so again, another useful index worth double checking - and it is free!


Also newly released on the site are 106,368 browsable images in a new database entitled England, Diocese of Durham Bishops' Transcripts ca., 1700-1900. These cover various parishes within Cumberland, Durham, North Durham, Northumberland and York.
