Roman Catholic records from Salford diocese are being digitised

The Catholic Family History blog has a report on a current project to digitise the Roman Catholic parish registers from the diocese of Salford in England (which includes Manchester), including all baptism, confirmation, marriage and death registers as deposited at Lancashire County Record Office. The cut off point will be the mid 20th century, and the project will also include some registers still held at parish level. Many of the records have already been digitised, with work continuing on the rest, and there are plans to create indexes.

The full story is available at https://catholicfhs.wordpress.com/2015/08/29/salford-diocese-parish-registers-project/, with a direct link to the project also available at www.sdaregisters.co.uk.
