Description
 
Subscriptions to online history and genealogy research sites are not cheap so it pays to know what records they offer and how to use them most effectively. 'The New Findmypast.com.au: Gateway to the World Collection' includes many examples and tips on how to achieve the most from your searches.

findmypast.com.au was launched in May 2010 - since then the number of records available has almost quadrupled. Following the release in August 2012 of the findmypast World Collection, it is now your gateway to all the findmypast records: for the UK, Australia/New Zealand, Ireland and the US

The site has a fantasically rich source of data to offer to Australian and New Zealand researchers - for both family and local history users. Over 135 million records are currently available - now including the extremely popular 'Passengers lists leaving UK 1890-1960' - and most are not available elsewhere online. Where else can you search the full text of electoral rolls, government gazettes, police gazettes and uncover detailed descriptions of family and places? Are you related to the person with ‘dark eyebrows, keen eyes, thoughtful look, dent on nose, about half an inch from the end, rather large ugly mouth; dressed in black hat with crape, brown mixture overcoat, and shepherd’s plaid trousers’?

This is just the beginning - there are many more records in the pipeline!
