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
Baptisms: 2,083,430 records covering 1538-1912
Marriages: 1,226,650 records covering 1539-1927
Banns: 557,078 records covering 1603-1927
Burials: 2,057,453 records covering 1539-2007
These records cover the following counties: Anglesey, Brecknockshire, Caernarvonshire, Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Glamorganshire, Merionethshire, Monmouthshire, Montgomeryshire, Pembrokeshire and Radnorshire.
The Welsh County Archivists Group and the National Library of Wales are the holders of the original records.
