FamilySearch adds Devon and Hampshire Bishop's Transcripts

England, Devon Bishop's Transcripts, 1558-1887; 379,189 records from 524 parishes. See the coverage table.

England, Hampshire Bishop's Transcripts, 1680-1892; 849,707 records. There is no coverage table for this collection. A list of all parishes in Hampshire is at www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Hampshire_Parishes.

These are further collections where you can see the transcribed record freely, but need to be a LDS Church member, or go to a Family History Centre or an accredited library to see the image of the original.

A reminder that both Devon and Hampshire have OPCs. What's that you ask? An Online Parish Clerk, an unpaid volunteer willing to help others with their genealogical research. They collect, collate and transcribe records for various parishes within their respective areas. Find a list at www.ukbmd.org.uk/online_parish_clerk.
