Findmypast Weekly Update

New to Findmypast this last week (I missed posting) are parish BMBs from Cumberland, the most northwesterly of the old English counties.

Cumberland Baptisms
Sixty-five thousand two hundred fifty-two new transcriptions from across the county for a total of 192,404 records.

Cumberland Marriages
Covering from 1547 to 1975, there are 68,211 new records  for a new total of 125,020,

Cumberland Burials
Between 1566 and 1992, 62,746 new burial records for a total of 133,333.

The new entries have yet to be added to the parish list so which additional parishes for which year are now included is a mystery. Many of the entries are from FamilySearch and the old IGI. There are various other sources, including printed marriage listings.
