Ancestry adds Jersey parish records

Records from Jersey, the largest Channel Island, are the latest addition to Ancestry with 986,000 records and over 68,000 images including birth and burial records as far back as 1541:

Jersey, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1541-1812
Jersey, Church of England Births and Baptisms, 1813-1915
Jersey, Church of England Marriages, 1754-1940
Jersey, Church of England Deaths and Burials, 1813-1940

Jersey punched above its weight in terms of migration to Canada, especially Newfoundland and the Maritimes.

I researched on Jersey in 2013. Except for German occupation during the war, Jersey has had a very stable history and a small population, and all FH information is located in one facility in St Helier, so family history research there was ridiculously easy.

In one morning I was able to uncover back to my research subject's 7th great grandfather in the early 1600s! And I spent the rest of the day on the beach! Cheers, BT
