Find your ancestors in Yorkshire baptisms

What can these records tell me?

There are over 5.3 million records of baptisms in Anglican parishes across the three historic Yorkshire counties, as well as records from some Roman Catholic and Non-Conformist parishes. This record set brings together parish records held in nine separate Yorkshire archives and family history societies in a comprehensive collection of parish records for the whole county. Each record contains a transcript and an image of the original record. Each transcript will provide all or some of the following information:
  • Name
  • Baptism year
  • Baptism date
  • Baptism place
  • Denomination
  • Father’s name
  • Mother’s name
  • Residence
