Millions of historical criminal records from England and Wales are going online. Half a million of the records from 1770 to 1934 have been published today by the genealogy website findmypast.co.uk in association with The National Archives.
They can now be accessed by anybody, anywhere in the world - although there will be a small fee to do so. A further two million records will be going online by the end of the year. Among the documents are court papers, verdicts, sentences and mugshots.
Many of the photographs show suspects holding their hands to their chests, in case they have an identifying feature like a missing finger.Uncover The Criminals In Your Family Online
