Ancestry adds TNA Non-conformist Records

  • Ancestry is playing catch-up again, this time with Non-conformist BMD records from The (UK) National Archives for which they did not get the original digitization contract.
    Under the heading England & Wales, Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Registers, 1567-1970, you'll find over 2.5 million records from:
    RG 4: General Register Office: Registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths surrendered to the Non-parochial Registers Commissions of 1837 and 1857.
    RG 5: General Register Office: Birth Certificates from the Presbyterian, Independent and Baptist Registry and from the Wesleyan Methodist Metropolitan Registry.
    RG 8: General Register Office: Registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths surrendered to the Non Parochial Registers Commission of 1857, and other registers and church records in the Protectorates of Africa and Asia.
