I see that there are Wiltshire Baptisms pre-1837 available - I'll have to see if my Rich and Richman folks are included.  There are also Somerset Marriages available.  But not Lancashire or Yorkshire, or many other counties.

I was really surprised that FindMyPast doesn't have parish records for every county for baptisms, marriages and burials.  I just expected that a longstanding commercial website in England would have them - I guess my expectations were too high.  Hmmm, perhaps they haven't loaded everything they have onto the www.FindMyPast.com site.  Are there more records available on the www.findmypast.co.uk website?  Is there a list of them somewhere?

Many parish record transcriptions are online on Online Parish Clerks sites - such as the Lancashire site at http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/.  Many are, apparently, still in work.

Do I recall correctly that the "transcriptions" for the UK census are less detailed than those found on the .co.uk site?

Taco Goulooze said...

Hi Randy,

I have 400+ non-copyrighted e-books (over 6 GB) of English parish registers (downloaded of the internet). Anything in particular you are looking for?

Missy/Bayside Research said...

Thank you, Randy! I had tried to find a list like this while exploring their site a few days ago -- this is very helpful information!

Tolley Family Historian said...

Many parish records are simply not available to any commercial organisations. The originals are often deposited in local county record offices and archives who are often reluctant to allow access for filming due to the fragility of some of the records. Many local government organizations see their role as being to preserve first and giving access is only a secondary consideration. There are also copyright issues or permissions that need to be obtained - many churches entered into convoluted agreements with local authorities years ago which forbade the distribution and copying of records etc. The coverage of many counties is also piecemeal and fragmentary at best - many records were kept in local churches for many hundreds of years and have suffered from water, vermin and fire.

I have been told that the findmypast.com.au site world collection so far only has 80% of the UK records from FindMyPast.co.uk including only transcripts of the Military Pension records (not the actual record images as on FindMyPast.co.uk). This may be similar for FindMyPast.com. I was told via email that the remaining UK records will be added later.

Don't be surprised, Randy. There are a very large number of parish registers, covering the period from 1538 to the present day. It will take many years for them all to be digitised and indexed. I am actually surprised at how many have come online over the past couple of years.

One problem is that the main players all aim at the same targets, so they all focused on the censuses first, then the GRO indexes to births, marriages and deaths from 1837 onwards and are only now turning their attention to parish registers. If one of these companies had focused on parish registers from the outset, they would by now have a great USP.
