Whittlesey Parish Registers

After 20 years of tracing my ancestors in the Whittlesey area of the Cambridgeshire, I've finally invested in some CD's of the local parish registers. Well, actually these CD's were published by Cambs Family History Society in 2009, so they are quite recent. Before then it was a case of searching through fiddly sheets of microfiche, or printed copies at record offices. The new CD's have transcribed the records of Whittlesey St Mary, Whittlesey St Andrew from 1599 to 1950. The church at Coates is also included (built in 1850). Impressive work!! It will certainly keep me busy during the chilly autumn evenings adding names and dates to my family tree!
