Chelsea Pension and Glamorgan parish registers indexes

FamilySearch (www.familysearch.org) has added an index to its British Isles collection for 933,943 Chelsea Pension records from 1760-1913. Not much is returned in a search other than a name and an estimated birth year, with no details on regiment. The index acts as a gateway to the original images at FindmyPast (www.findmypast.co.uk). In this case I would suggest the FindmyPast website is probably a better search tool for these records.

Also launched on FamilySearch is an index database of 921,889 entries from Glamorgan parish registers from 1558-1900, courtesy of Glamorgan Family History Society. There are no images but the transcripts are quite detailed.

(With thanks to John Reid of the Anglo-Celtic Connections blog for the Glamorgan spot)
