  I received this information from Findmypast today:


Uncover 400 years of Oxfordshire history this Findmypast Friday

Oxfordshire Baptisms

This brand-new collection includes over 233,000 records from the existing England Baptisms collection, in addition to 20,185 new records. As building blocks of your family tree, you’ll want to delve into these if you have Oxfordshire ancestors. You’ll typically find a name, birthdate, baptism date, place, and both parents’ names. The records span an impressive 426 years, from 1524 to 1950.

Oxfordshire Marriages

Also new, this set includes existing records and around 13,098 brand-new ones, totalling 67,864. Spanning 1538 to 1936, you should find a name, spouse’s name, place and marriage year.

Oxfordshire Burials

Lastly, there are 34,612 brand-new burials into this new set, totalling 37,241 with the existing records. Covering 1558 to 1976, there are records from every parish across Oxfordshire. You’ll usually find a full name, birth year, burial year and place.
