Find out whether your ancestor fought for the Confederacy during the American Civil War with this index of lists and pension applications pertaining to Confederate veterans from South Carolina.

Browse through more than 14,000 transcriptions of monumental inscriptions captured from 260 parishes across Norfolk. A monumental inscription can reveal your ancestor's residence, death date, age at death, and burial location.

Browse more than 45,000 records taken from cemetery registers covering Chadderton, Crompton, Failsworth, Greenacres, Hollinwood, Lees, and Royton in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. The registers will reveal your ancestor's age, residence, date of death, and place of burial.

Over 613,000 records have been added to our collection of Wiltshire parish baptisms. Whilst the registers are for Church of England parishes, most other denominations also used the Anglican parishes for registration purposes, with the exception of Quaker and Jewish records. Transcriptions were created by both Findmypast and Wiltshire Family History Society. Each record contains a transcription created from either an original parish registers or bishop's transcript. The information varies, but most will include a combination of your ancestor's birth date, baptism date, parish and parents' names.

Over 3,000 records covering burial sites in Twickenham and Uxbridge have been added to our collection of Monumental Inscriptions. Each record includes a transcript with a varying amount of information. Most of the transcripts include full name, age, birth year, death year, dedication, location and monument type. You may also see notes on the inscription including the names of others buried in that plot or more specific details regarding their age and date of death.
