Ancestry adds Yorkshire, England: Church of England Parish Records, 1538-1873

Find 1,192,245 new to Ancestry records from 94 parishes compiled from the printed parish registers.
Ancestry's description mentions "transferring the transcripts to this electronic medium" which likely means an OCR process.
Don't forget to view the original document linked under "View Images" which likely has more information than under "View Record" such as witnesses names.
There's more to come. "Records from various parishes throughout Yorkshire will continually be added to this database for the next couple of months."
