FamilySearch adds Westminster and Derbyshire records

FamilySearch ( has added two new English collections to its site:

England, Westminster Rate Books, 1634-1900

This collection contains rate books from various parishes in Westminster City from 1634-1900. The rate books were an assessment of tax that was owed and are an excellent census substitute. They are arranged by street and usually contain the head of household, owner, street address, rate owed, and event date. This collection was originally filmed at the Westminster City Archives and the index was created by

England, Derbyshire, Church of England Parish Registers, 1537-1918

Church of England parish registers containing baptisms, marriages/banns, and burials. Date ranges of available records may vary by locality. Source: Church of England, Record Office, Matlock.
