New additions spanning all across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This week sees the release of 200,000 death records exactly, all from the more recent 2020-2021. It's also a mammoth week here at the archive, with over 700,000 new pages added. Here's a rundown of everything that's new.

If you're looking to fill out your tree with more recent records, this release is for you. We've added 184,062 new records to this collection, from approximately November 2020-November 2021.

These records will often give you a residence, postcode district, and a full birthday.

We've added 13,886 records to this collection, again from 2020-2021.

These records will give you the same information as the previous set, including postcode district and birthday.

There are 2,052 new additions to this collection, with the same years and information as the previous two sets.

If anything, this release serves as a reminder that family history does not start with passenger lists from the 19th century, or petty court sessions from the 20th century - family history starts with us.

We've added a staggering 706,009 pages to the archive this week, including bestselling Scottish title Thomson's Weekly News.

Thomson's Weekly News, 1933.
