I usually confine myself to English records because that is where my area of expertise is, but I have been asked to include notices about additions to the collections offered by Ancestry and FindMyPast. So here goes ….

FindMyPast has added 2 million records to their Welsh Parish Register Collection. This is the first time that Welsh parish records have been made available online.

The new addition consists of

Warwickshire Parish Records Online

Did you know that Warwickshire parish records are online on Ancestry so if you don’t live near the record office you can easily access them online. If you aren’t a subscriber remember that you can sign up for a 14 day free trial or many public libraries offer free access to Ancestry.

The records are Baptisms 1538 – 1906, Marriages 1538 – 1910, Burials 1538 – 1910 and miscellaneous parish papers such as removal papers, vestry minutes and deeds. What a treasure trove for those with Warwickshire ancestry, sadly my family dipped into Warwickshire for a generation only and then scuttled back to Hampshire !!
