Findmypast has been very busy this week! (See my next post). Here's the Findmypast Friday
announcement for 5February 2016:   

We are particularly thrilled to announce the release of our brand new United States Marriages, marking the launch of a project to bring you the single largest online collection of US Marriages in history.

Our new collection of Norfolk baptisms, banns, marriages and burials adds yet another county to our already extensive collection of UK Parish records and will allow you to trace your family's British roots all the way back to Tudor England.

This week we've added over 37 million new records including:

United States Marriages
Covering 360 years of marriages from 1650-2010, when complete this landmark collection will contain at least 100 million records and more than 450 million names from 2,800 counties across the United Sates.
