How to browse the Lincolnshire parish records

Start your search by selecting a parish. The available events and year ranges for that parish will then automatically populate and can be selected using the dropdowns.

When you have selected a parish, event and year range, click the 'Search' button and you will be shown a list of all the images for that particular volume, numbered sequentially. Click 'View' to open an image.

Note that many earlier parish registers include two or more event types – these may be shown in the dropdown list as composite, or described more specifically as, for example, baptisms and burials. You should consider the composite registers if no year range is shown for the particular event type you are looking for.
