FindmyPast digitising English and Welsh school registers

The UK FindmyPast site (www.findmypast.co.uk) has announced that it has started work on a two year project to digitise over a million English and Welsh school registers from 1870-1914, including the records of many Industrial Schools in that period. The project is being carried out in partnership with the Archives and Records Association.

The full story is at http://blog.findmypast.co.uk/2013/10/millions-of-school-records-to-be-published-online-for-the-first-time/


My latest book, Discover Scottish Civil Registration Records, is now available from http://www.gould.com.au (print) and http://www.gen-ebooks.com/unlock-the-past.html (ebook), whilst Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet is available at http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Tracing-Your-Irish-History-on-the-Internet/p/3889/. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the OPRs, starts Nov 13th - see http://pharostutors.com.
