It's over a month since Findmypast blew it by listing a new collection of Canadian records accompanied by a US flag. They moved to add "US & Canada family history" to the front page and sent an apology. But it's only skin deep. Go to the A-Z of records catalogue listing and nothing has changed. All Canadian records are listed under United States. Would it be that much more difficult to make it "United States and Canada" there too?
The major addition by Findmypast this week, over 2 million records, should have been opened in the 1939 Register when it was appeared a year ago. They were kept back when FMP failed to correlate death registrations with the Register entries.
Also new this week is a collection of Irish Directories. Specifically:
The Treble Almanac: 1802-1844, which comprises three separate sources: John Watson Stewarts Almanack, The English Court Registry (until it ceased publication in 1837), and Wilson’s Dublin Directory.
Thom's Irish Almanac: 1844-1900, the best known directory in Ireland.
Pettigrew & Oulton's Dublin Almanac & General Register of Ireland: 1834-1850 which contains a street-by-street listing of residents of Dublin.
