Find my past

Millions of baptism, marriage and burial entries are available to view online as part of an exciting agreement to digitise the parish registers held at the North Yorkshire County Record Office.  Around 2,700 parish registers from over 250 parishes in the dioceses of York, Bradford, and Ripon and Leeds have been digitised by Findmypast, and made available to the public through their website  For the first time, researchers from around the world are able to browse the registers from the comfort of their own homes.

The registers are fully searchable and available to view or download from the website.  There is a cost for viewing the parish register entries online but free access to the registers is still maintained at the record office and in selected North Yorkshire libraries.
