More Welsh parish records added to FMP

FindMyPast has added 1.2 million parish baptisms, marriages and burials to its Wales collection, which includes records from 1538.

The newly added records include 522,011 baptisms, 96,286 marriages and 456,600 burials, and takes the total number of Welsh parish records to more than 5million.

Some Welsh parishes have opted out of the partnership that's bringing these records to the online environment. There's an explanatory note on this FMP page.

The Wales collection is available in FindMyPast's Britain and World subscription packages.
