Findmypast Friday: Cumberland Parish Records and More Newspapers

 I received this information from Findmypast today:


Thousands more records for North West England this Findmypast Friday

Cumberland Baptisms

The 65,252 new records are perfect building blocks for your family tree. Spanning over four centuries, they may help you find an ancestor’s name, baptism date and place, and a father’s name. Some also include a mother’s name, addresses and occupations.

Cumberland Marriages

For marriages, there are 68,211 new records to explore, covering 1547 to 1975. They will typically include both spouses’ names, ages and addresses, plus the place and date of the marriage, and the names of their fathers.

Cumberland Burials

Finally, there are 62,746 new burials to delve into, covering 1566 to 1992. You may find an ancestor’s name, burial date and place, and often their residence.
