RTFHS baptism/birth index

Looking for the baptism or birth of a travelling ancestor? Perhaps our index can help. We’re currently building up a collection of extracts from parish registers and birth certificates that we’ll add regularly to this page. Some will be open to the public but most will be in a new members-only area of this site, currently under development. So please check back soon. And if you have any to share, please contact us.

It’s always best to check the original registers for accuracy as we receive contributions for this list from many different individuals and sources.

To protect the privacy of individuals, we only publish birth and baptism information from before December 1920.
