2 million Hertfordshire parish records arrive at FindMyPast


FindMyPast have added another batch of parish records to their site – and again they’ve covered one of the parishes in which my relatives lived – Barkway.

FindMyPast.co.uk logoMy Head and Barker families lived in Barkway, Hertfordshire during the 19th Century, and the latest joint venture between FindMyPast and Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies, will now allow me to research this branch further.

My research into the Head branch contained a few candidates for relatives, so hopefully these ‘new’ records will allow me to expand the tree further back.

The new records for Barkway are:

  • Baptism 1538-1836
  • Banns 1754-1928
  • Marriages 1538-1837
  • Burials 1538-1916

The records are just one of the many parishes that were added in this massive 2 million record update.

So, thank you FindMyPast, there goes my weekend!

    Not overly impressed by FMP at the present. With the Lincolnshire records you cannot move between the individual pages without going back to the index pages, which give no clue as to what you are looking at. With the Hertfordshire records you can search for place e.g. Ware, but not the parish e.g. Christ Church, Ware. So I have no idea whether this church is included in the collection.
