Find My Past: three become one!

Family historians are passionate and observant people so they will be the first to notice a change in one of our very popular online family history resources.

Find My Past Ireland, Find My Past Australia/NZ and Find My Past United Kingdom have combined into one large Find My Past database. This means all that same lovely information is still available, but just in the one place in one search. If you want to limit your search by location all you need to do is use a drop box on the front page.
