This week's FindmyPast Friday collection additions salute the "Back to School" season:

To celebrate the start of the new school year, today's Findmypast Friday includes millions of school records from around the globe. Take a glimpse into your ancestors' early life and pinpoint the area they grew up in, reveal if they had a perfect attendance or occasionally played truant and even determine whether they worked in a school as an adult.

We've added over 2.8 million new school records including:
