Find My Past Parish Records

clip_image002In one of my previous posts I mentioned how hard it was to find out which parishes and for what time period were covered on the Find My Past parish records collection. Being the sort of genealogist who likes to know these things I emailed Find My Past and Liam Kelly promptly replied. Many thanks Liam Open-mouthed smile

The general link to the whole collection is

but you then have to click the “next” to get to the various pages where the info is. Along the way you will go through pages that have some good descriptions of the records you are looking at. Very useful for those who are new to genealogy or who have gone along not really knowing the ins and outs of parish registers. Well worth a read.

So that you don’t have to go through all the pages if you just want to get to the listings here are the links to the actual coverage info.

Churches & Burial Grounds in City of London Collection. The lists are down the page.

Burial Records.

These are from all around the country, some are county wide others from a specific parish.

Marriage Records.

Like the burials these are from all around the country, some are county wide others from a specific parish.

Baptism Records.

Again these are like the burials & marriages.

So there is the information, go and have a look to see if your parishes are covered and if they are then I can guess what you will be doing for the rest of the day !!
