Ancestry adds Manchester Non-Conformist records

There are nearly 400,000 records for more than 100 places in three new Manchester databases just added to Ancestry.co.uk.
The databases are:
Manchester, England, Non-Conformist Births and Baptisms, 1758-1912 has 197,227 records
Manchester, England, Non-Conformist Marriages, 1758-1937
103,637 records,
Manchester, England, Non-Conformist Deaths and Burials, 1758-1987 has 97,860 records

Ancestry informs that the records include those for  Methodist, Quaker, Presbyterian, Wesleyan, URC, Congregationalist, Baptist, Unitarian, and Jewish congregations. I didn't find any Jewish records.

You can search or browse by place and congregation and view images of the originals.

They are sourced from the Greater Manchester County Record Office / Manchester Archives and Local Studies. Tameside Local Studies and Archives, Oldham Archives and Local Studies, Wigan Archives Services, Bury Archives Service, Stockport Archive Service.
