Findmypast add new workhouse and marriage records, along with more than quarter of a million additional newspaper pages.
Lancashire, Oldham Workhouse
This brand new collection sees over 150,000 records from Oldham Workhouse in Lancashire published online. These records cover over 130 years, from 1800-1936, and include both admissions and discharges. The transcripts provide standard biographical information, as well as the admission or event date. While the original record images include details such as notes on the inmate’s state at arrival (including health conditions and financial situation), whether they were on a regular diet or 'infirm' diet, religious persuasion, and reason for discharge.
Huntingdonshire Marriages 1754-1837 Index
Though this collection was originally released as a browsable collection, Findmypast now transcribed these records and released them as a fully searchable index for the first time. The records include full names of both spouses, the year of marriage, and sometimes extra details, such as occupation or whether the spouses were previously widowed.
Findmypast has added 256,709 brand new pages to their ever-growing newspaper archive, with titles from all across the UK covered.
