Over 200,000 new baptism and burial records added by findmypast.co.uk

The following is an announcement from findmypast.co.uk

"We have added a total of 204,501 new baptism and burial records for Wiltshire, Manchester and Dorset to findmypast.co.uk.

The records, provided by the Wiltshire Family History Society, the Lincolnshire Family History Society and the Dorset Family History Society, are:

Chippenham St Andrews - Wiltshire, 25,002 baptisms
Manchester - 148,040 burials
Dorset - 31,459 burials"

Comment: I'm not sure why the Lincolnshire FHS would be indexing Manchester burials?

Good news, thank you, have been using fmp at Eatontown, NJ, LDS Family History Center for my Thorne family in Dorset for ancestors of Benjamin Thorne of Thornhill, Ont. Found all his brothers and sisters.
