The following announcement was written by Findmypast:

Thousands more new and exclusive English parish records published  

Findmypast adds records for Suffolk and Staffordshire this Findmypast Friday 

Thanks to Findmypast’s longstanding partnership with the Family History Federation, thousands more exclusive parish records have been published this week. 

Suffolk Baptism Index 1538-1911 

Over 307,000 records have been added into this existing collection, covering 232 churches and the years 1813-1900. Thanks to the work done by volunteers at Suffolk Family History Society, these baptism records could reveal the parents’ names of your Suffolk ancestors, their baptism dates and where they lived, taking your family tree further than ever before. 

“This latest release completes the set for 1813-1900 for Suffolk baptisms and adds to other Suffolk records already on Findmypast.  We are hugely grateful for the efforts of all the volunteers involved in transcribing, checking, checking again, and then formatting the information for publication. Some of them work from home (wherever that is) from films and fiche, some are able to go into the record offices and see the records there. We hope to bring more transcriptions to Findmypast over the coming months.” – Suffolk Family History Society 

Staffordshire Baptisms 

Courtesy of Burntwood Family History Group, a further 141,000 new records across 28 churches have been added into this existing collection, which now stands at 2.1 million records. Many include original images, where residences and fathers’ occupations may be found. 

Staffordshire Marriages  

Another 70,000 records have been added into this collection from 19 churches. With some going back to the 1560s, researchers may learn more about their ancestor’s residence and age, plus details of witnesses on the original images.
