In association with The National Archives, we’re incredibly excited to be able to announce the addition of 1.9 million historic criminal records, spanning 1779-1936, which are available online for the first time, only on Findmypast. Now you can trace the law breakers and law makers that reside in your family tree better than ever before.”
