This week 2.1 million Berkshire baptisms, burials, marriages and banns transcripts have been added to FMP.
The over 1 million baptism records, between 1538 and 1917, often include sources from both the parish records and bishops transcripts. While that means fewer events than records it’s good to have both as you may get more information in one than the other. I found another sibling for my 2xgreat-grandmother.
With these additions, there are now 1,456,503 burial transcripts and 956,431 marriages and banns in this Berkshire collection. Again expect more than one record for the same event. 20 marriage events for a surname of my interest were in 33 records.
