Essex (England) Record Office Launches a New Searchable Index of the Essex Parish Registers

The Essex Record Office, working alongside, have launched a new searchable index of the Essex parish registers. Searching for your Essex ancestors is now easier than ever, according to an article in he Essex Record Office’s Blog at:

Parish register for St Mary the Virgin, Chelmsford.

My thanks to newsletter reader Holly Adams for telling me about this new online resource.


Just a notice. There’s no link to their records or Ancestry’s


Unfortunately there is no direct link between the transcribed register entries at Ancestry and the images on the Essex Ancestors website. However, if you have a subscription to both sites you can get to the image by following the tips in this article from the most recent LostCousins newsletter.
Subscriptions to Essex Ancestors online range from 20GBP for 24 hours to 95GBP for 12 months.
