Ancestry adds Worcestershire Parish Records

This is another significant addition to Ancestry’s collection of English country records. Worcestershire midsize population (1.1 million for the historic country in 2011 – source) is not well covered by other websites with images of the original record.

The Ancestry collections, sourced from Bishop’s Transcripts at the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service, are:

Worcestershire, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812,  3,264,925 records.
Worcestershire, England, Church of England Births and Baptisms, 1812-1918, 1,727,188 records.
Worcestershire, England, Church of England Marriages and Banns, 1754-1935, 120,628 records.
Worcestershire, England, Church of England Deaths and Burials, 1813-1918,  432,453 records.

You can search and browse these records. If you don’t find a record, check the browse for the parish to look for gaps in coverage or, if not, the inevitable transcription errors.
