Findmypast has announced the official release of The Findmypast Library Edition.
Their publicity notes collection highlights:
Largest online collection of parish records from the United Kingdom
Exclusive access to the new PERiodical Source Index (now with images)
Most comprehensive Irish family history records in the world
It will be interesting to see how many libraries pick up the new Findmypast service – and what records the library edition includes.
The Minnesota Genealogical Society (MGS) library currently carries a regular Findmypast subscription.
The Hennepin County Library system subscribes to Ancestry Library Edition, Fold3History & Genealogy Archives Plus, GenealogyConnect, and Heritage Quest. The last three sources (in italics) can be accessed from home with a Hennepin Co. library card. I encourage you to check your local library’s website to find out what online genealogy and local history resources may be available to you.
