Findmypast.co.uk Adds Montgomeryshire BMBs

The following parish records from the Montgomeryshire Genealogical Society are now on findmypast.co.uk:

County Record type No. of records Year range
Montgomeryshire Baptisms 10,909 1601-1901
Montgomeryshire Marriages 4,202 1574-1837
Montgomeryshire Burials 8,873 1598-1878

Although it's not a huge number of records the fact that Findmypast gives straightforward information about the number of records is welcome. As was commented on the GENBRIT list, they don't "overegg the pudding" as Ancestry is liable to do.

This is another example of findmypast.co.uk, through the Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS), working to ensure that member societies as well as FMP subscribers and pay per view clients, can benefit financially from the society's work.
