Just a quick note to let you know that Findmypast have released 10 million new Cheshire records today.
The Cheshire Collection is an extraordinarily rich and comprehensive set of records provided by Cheshire Archives and Local Studies.
These records are essential to anyone with Cheshire roots or connections, as they cover not just the Church of England but also Roman Catholic and Non-Conformist registers, and, moreover, extend well beyond these core records of baptism, marriage and burial to a variety of other records giving biographical details for the residents of the county.
These records span the period 1538-1910. These records contain:
- Bishop’s Transcripts of the Parish Registers 1576-1905
- Church of England Parish Registers 1538-1910
- Electoral Registers 1842-1900
- Marriage Licence Bonds and Allegations 1663-1905
- Non-Conformist and Roman Catholic Records 1671-1910
- Workhouse Registers 1781-1910
