More Yorkshire Parish Register Indexes

More than 450,000 parish records for Yorkshire, Northumberland, Durham, Wiltshire and Suffolk have just been added to FindMyPast's UK parish records collection.

I have lots of Yorkshire ancestors, and many of them moved to the county of Durham in the mid-1800s. I was therefore delighted to hear that these new records include 7,113 Ryedale baptisms, marriages and burials (1754-1999);  22,687 Sheffield baptisms (1837-1968);  8,181 Sheffield marriages (1824-1991); and 27,420 Northumberland and Durham burials (1587-2009).

These parish records are available as a result of the ongoing partnership between FindMyPast and the Federation of Family History Societies. There are millions more records to come, so watch for news from FindMyPast.
