About the Lincolnshire Collection


We are pleased to be working in association with Lincolnshire Archives to bring you the Lincolnshire Collection.

Included in the collection are Church of England parish baptisms, marriages and burials for churches in Lincolnshire. The registers are a vital resource for people researching the family and local history of the county.

Lincolnshire Archives is the principal archive repository for historic Lincolnshire, stretching from the Humber to the Wash. Millions of documents dating from the eleventh century to the present day are stored on over six miles of shelving in Lincoln.

As well as the ecclesiastical records showcased on findmypast, the office preserves original documents covering many aspects of life in the county, including public bodies, the Diocese of Lincoln, chapels, landed estates, businesses, organisations and societies. Among these can be found wills, title deeds, minute books, letters and diaries, manorial documents, financial records, maps, plans and photographs. The Archives is also home to the Foster Library containing many historical and local publications.

Catalogues and images from the Archives, and from Lincolnshire County Council's museums, libraries and Historic Environment Record can be found on the Lincs to the Past website.
