Jersey Parish Registers now online

Ancestry.co.uk has put the parish registers for the Channel Island of Jersey online. Jersey is not just a lovely place to spend a holiday, it has a rich and varied history. Wikipedia has a good overview if you wish to know more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Jersey.

I have several ancestors who moved in the Victorian period to Jersey to retire and I shall be searching these records to see if the connection with the island in fact was earlier than the 1851 census through which I was alerted to their move to Jersey.

The online records date from 1541 and covers the usual baptisms, marriages and burials.
