What can these records tell me?

There are over 3 million records covering Anglican parishes across the three historic Yorkshire counties as well as records from some Roman Catholic parishes. This record set brings together the parish records held in nine separate Yorkshire archives and family history societies to form a comprehensive collection of parish records for the whole county. Each record contains a transcript and, where available, an image of the original record. Transcripts will provide all or some of the following information:

  • Name
  • Birth year
  • Marriage date
  • Marriage place
  • Residence
  • Occupation
  • Marital status
  • Spouse’s name
  • Spouse’s residence
  • Spouse’s occupation
  • Spouse’s marital status
  • Father’s name
  • Spouse’s father’s name
  • Witnesses
