Findmypast is one of the major genealogical data services in the UK and has played a significant role in digitising records. This talk will provide an overview of the wide range of Findmypast's records
These include civil registration indexes, the censuses, occupational records, passenger lists, and military records. We will look at the best ways to select and search record sets, explore some of the foibles of the search facilities, and look at ways of dealing with search problems. Finally we will look at issues of support: how well Findmypast documents what each record set holds and how it deals with transcription errors.
This is a talk run by the Buckinghamshire Family History Society on Tuesday 11th February 2020 in the Eghams Room at Bourne End Community Centre starting at 19:45 (doors open 19:30). Tea and coffee are available after the talk with time to mingle and chat.
Visitors are very welcome. Entrance is £2 for members or £4 for non-members (or why not take out an annual membership from as little as £6).
