Updates on FamilySearch

Two databases have been updated on FamilySearch (www.familysearch.org) in the last week.

Great Britain Births and Baptisms, 1571-1977 is a collection of 21,150 vital records sourced from the International Genealogical Index. Quite why it is a standalone offering from the IGI, or how extensive it is for each of the UK's four countries, I have absolutely no idea, and the wiki page at https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Great_Britain_Births_and_Baptisms_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records) doesn't add any clarity. Nevertheless, it may be worth a look.

The England, Northumberland, Miscellaneous Records,1570-2005 database of browsable images has also been updated.
