Parish Register Entry

Parish Register Digitization Project

This digitization project was funded by the
Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Family History Society

and took place between 2018 and 2019

                                                                                                                                                                 

 

The lives of local people and your own family since the 16th century

 

Every page of these registers has been digitally photographed to a high resolution, 65,000 pages in total, and each name on every image is being matched to register transcripts. To date over 275,000 names can be searched and matched so you can complete your research online.

 

Researching the data and images provides many new opportunities including finding out about your own family; learning more about each parish; population analysis; migration; and seeing original pages starting in 1538.
