Two million historic Masonic records published online
More than two million historic Freemason membership records are now available to view online for the first time, revealing the names of some of the most famous and well-connected men in British history.
Digitised by Ancestry, the world’s largest family history resource, the UK and Ireland Freemason Membership Registers 1733-1923 span 190 years.
Rich in detail, each record reveals the Freemason’s name, profession, residence, date of initiation or date that they joined the organisation, age at initiation and Lodge location.
Accordingly, this collection will be of vital significance for anybody looking to locate, or find out more about, a Masonic ancestor.
