Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire records on FamilySearch

John Reid has just blogged at Anglo-Celtic Connections that a new series of transcribed Bishops Transcripts for Cheshire have gone online at FamilySearch, covering 1598-1900.

See http://anglo-celtic-connections.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/familysearch-england-cheshire-bishops.html.

Also released a few days ago is England, Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire, Parish Registers, 1603-1910. here's the blurb:

This collection covers records from the Diocese of Manchester held by the Manchester Archives and Local Studies. The parishes are mainly from the historic county of Lancashire, with a few parishes from Cheshire and Yorkshire. Parish registers contain births, christenings, burials, marriages, and mixed church records.

My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Registers, starts May 15th - see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/scotland-1750-1850-beyond-oprs-starts.html. Time to smash a few brick walls...!
