Over 178,000 new parish records are now available online at Findmypast.
The UK family history website Findmypast has added over 28,000 new Wakefield and District baptism records and 150,000 National Burial Index records from Cleveland.
Findmypast says: “The Wakefield and District baptisms contain 28,372 records comprised of transcripts of original parish registers made by the Wakefield and District Family History Society. Spanning the years 1622 to 1913, they add to Findmypast’s existing collection of Wakefield baptisms that now totals 213,000 records.
“The new additions cover nine parishes: Wakefield All Saints, Warmfield St Peter’s, Chapelthorpe St James, Monk Bretton St Paul’s, Felkirk St Peter’s, Ryhill St James, Wragby St Michael’s, Wakefield St Andrew’s and South Ossett Christ Church, so there are now over 30 parishes from Wakefield district in West Yorkshire available to search on Findmypast.
“150,000 more burial records have also been added to Findmypast’s already extensive collection of National Burial Index records, which now total 12 million. Transcribed by the Cleveland Family History Society, thousands of these new records have never before been published by the Federation of Family History Societies and are only available at Findmypast.
“Both the Wakefield and District baptisms and National Burial Index records from Cleveland are part of Findmypast’s ongoing partnership with the Federation of Family History Societies to publish online parish records held by their numerous member societies across the country.”
