Over 1.3 million new records are available to search this Findmypast Friday including baptisms, banns, marriages and burials transcribed from original parish registers and bishop’s transcripts by Findmypast and the Nottinghamshire Family History Society.

The release marks the second phase of Findmypast’s Six Counties in Six Months initiative. First launched back in April with over five million Wiltshire records, the project will see the online publication of vital parish records from Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Somerset and Warwickshire over the next four months.

Today’s new additions further expand Findmypast’s unrivalled collection of English and Welsh parish records – the largest collection available online. New records have also been added to the PERiodical Source Register.

Nottinghamshire Baptisms Index 1538-1917

Over 580,000 records have been added to our collection of Nottinghamshire baptisms. The collection now contains over 1.4 million transcripts that will reveal your ancestor’s baptism date, baptism location, religious denomination, residence and parent’s names.

Nottinghamshire Banns Index 1600-1812

Nottinghamshire Banns contains over 800 records. Banns are proclamations of a couple’s intention to marry. This proclamation would be read out three months prior to the intended marriage date on three consecutive Sundays in the couple’s home parishes. The practice was introduced in order to prevent clandestine marriages and to give local congregations time to raise any objections. Each transcript will reveal the couple’s names, birth years, marital status, residence, where there banns were read and the dates of their readings.

Nottinghamshire Marriages Index 1528-1929

Over 295,000 records spanning 400 years have been added to our collection of Nottinghamshire Marriage records. The collection now contains over 984,000 transcripts that will reveal your ancestor’s birth year, residence, marriage date, marriage place, occupation, residence, father’s name, whether they were married by banns or licence, and corresponding details for their spouse. Some records may also lists the names of any witnesses.

Over 423,000 new transcripts have been added to our collection of Nottinghamshire burials.
