250,000 individuals named in education records added to TheGenealogist


07 December 2020
Fettes College, Edinburgh
TheGenealogist has released more college and university registers into its educational records collection, adding a quarter of a million additional individuals.

The release includes records from England, Scotland, Ireland, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Portugal.

The records can be used to discover a student’s achievements and to help you decide where next to focus your research. Educational records will confirm birth dates and sometimes the place of birth. Usually they give a father’s name and address, which is useful when the parent is missing from the census, and they can give details of the student’s occupation and other information that is difficult or impossible to find elsewhere.

The release also includes Irish Examination Board records from 1889, 1891 and 1892. These reveal the candidates’ names, addresses and grades in all their subjects. If you can find an ancestor, within these records, it will certainly be an eyeopener as they disclose what subjects your forebear had been a good or a bad student of.
