Wymeswold parish registers 1560 onwards

The parish registers for St Mary's Wymeswold were transcribed by Alec Moretti and cover the period from 1560 until when the parish registers currently in use commence. He also transcribed the register of baptisms at the RAF garrison between 1951 5, and details of Wymeswold people married at Ragdale and Gotham. These transcripts are made available for downloading in MS Word format, together with indexes in alphabetical order of surname (not all volumes were indexed by Alec).

Please note that many of these files are quite large (up to 300K) so may take some time to download.
