FamilySearch adds Cornwall parish registers

Thinking of ordering a marriage certificate for a marriage in Cornwall?  If the event took place in the 19th century, or very early 20th century you might want to save yourself a few pounds the marriage certificate costs at the GRO, and the wait, and check out these images newly online at FamilySearch.

The title given by FamilySearch for this set of microfilm images is England, Cornwall Parish Registers, 1538-1900

At present you'll find records for marriages, from the start of civil registration in 1837 or later to the early 1900s. Over 140 parishes are in the collection, a bit over half the Cornish parishes. There are 19,023 images.

Expect additions as the collection is being published as images become available.

A bonus is record images for the parish of Werrington (Devonshire), also marriages, from 1838 to 1905.
