Nottinghamshire Parish Registers

Great news for family historians!

We are excited to announce that, after almost 2 years of work, Nottingham city and Nottinghamshire's Anglican baptism, marriage, and burial Parish Registers are now available online.

The originals are preserved in Nottinghamshire Archives and thanks to our partnership with Ancestry and the Church of England, the original registers were conserved, digitised, indexed and are now available via free access to in library buildings and at the archives.

Approximately 75% of the complete registers have been added to the tune of 2 million images. These digital records will be a goldmine for family historians, making ancestors even easier to find and you can print, download or email  high-quality colour images of the entries. A list of what is available can be found here.
