Ancestry adds Cheshire, England, Parish Registers, 1538-1909

As is sometimes the case Ancestry is showing a new database in its catalogue but indicating there are no records contained. This one is Cheshire, England, Parish Registers, 1538-1909.

When I started searching there were lots of hits, all transcripts. The bar chart shows the number of entries in the specified year - every 25 years. They were all baptisms. Maybe the marriages and burials will be added.

Ancestry already has 51,686 records in Cheshire, England, Extracted Church of England Parish Records, 1564-1837.
