Plymouth & Devon parish registers online.

Our friends at FindMyPast have added to their parish register collection. This time it is the West Devon & Plymouth Record Offices that have allowed the scanning of their parish registers.

The records cover 500 years and comprise three and half million records so all those people have to be someone’s ancestors !

  1. As soon as I read about this I went to look up one ancestor who was born in Tavistock Devon in 1812. I found the record of his baptism directly on a parish register microfiche in the Tavistock library a few years ago. Sadly couldn’t find him under on FindMyPast even with variant spellings, and typing in different spellings.

  2. So apparently Tavistock, the borough seat of West Devon is not included in these registers. Laughable.
