Findmypast adds to British and Canadian Collections

England & Wales, Electoral Registers 1920-1932
Nearly 17 million new records are added to this collection which now totals approximately 220 million names of voters. Each record is displayed as a PDF document containing name, address or abode, nature of qualification or a description of property, Name, description and residence of landlord or other person to whom rent is paid. This is an ongoing project with the British Library. I was unsuccessful in finding any Welsh entries.

Britain, Histories & Reference Guides
The newest title in this collection is A General And True History Of The Lives And Actions Of The Most Famous Highwaymen, Murderers, Street-Robbers, Etc. published 1742

Canadian Directories & Almanacs
433 additional volumes with over 353,000 images covering Newfoundland, Ontario, and Toronto have been added. Dates range from 1853 until 2010 with best coverage in the 20th century.

Canada, Ontario, Toronto Emigrant Office Records Index
Taken from four volumes of assisted immigration registers created by the Toronto Emigrant Office (series RG 11-3) held at the Archives of Ontario which record information about some of the immigrants who arrived in Canada between 1865 and 1883. The database is freely accessible at www.archives.gov.on.ca/en/db/hawke-search-help.aspx
