First, an announcement from its Facebook page on search improvements:
We've enhanced our search function! Now you can search specific sub-categories within our six main categories. This should make it much easier for those who just want to search wills or marriages or directories or even evicted tenants. Happy searching!
Secondly, the site has added a Huguenot collection to its offerings, The Registers of the French Non-Conformist Churches Dublin 1701-1831, with some 1500 records. Further details are available at www.findmypast.ie/content/new-Huguenot-records.
