Find­my­past takes this spot partly thanks to this vast col­lec­tion of English and Welsh doc­u­ments sourced from The Na­tional Archives, which detail more than half-a-mil­lion crim­i­nals who passed through the jus­tice sys­tem be­tween 1770 and 1935. Sub­sets in­clude reg­is­ters of con­victs in prison hulks (1818–1831), af­ter-trial cal­en­dars of pris­on­ers (1855–1931), Home Of­fice cal­en­dars of pris­on­ers (1868–1929), plus records of the Prison Com­mis­sion and reg­is­ters of crim­i­nal pe­ti­tions. Find­my­past also has a col­lec­tion of about 3.5 mil­lion Ir­ish prison reg­is­ters (1790–1924), while ‘Pro’ mem­bers can ac­cess the ar­ti­cles digi­tised at british­news­pa­per­ar­chive.co.uk.
