Wiltshire takes pride of place this Findmypast Friday  

Findmypast add thousands of exclusive Wiltshire records from three new collections, in partnership with Wiltshire Family History Society 

Wiltshire Baptisms 

Covering nine parishes across Wiltshire and over 300 years, nearly 70,000 transcripts have been added into this existing collection. In addition to names, birth years and baptism years, it’s also possible to uncover parents’ names. 

Wiltshire Asylum Registers, 1789-1921 

This brand-new collection of nearly 28,000 transcripts covers eight institutions across the county. Details vary, but it might be possible to discover admission dates and notes on discharge. Earlier records in this collection are from private asylums.  

Wiltshire WW1 Hospital Records 

The next new collection includes just over 6,000 records for over three Wiltshire hospitals. Clues such as an ancestor’s rank, service number and details of injury could be found within these records. They also cover some regiments for outside of the UK. 

Wiltshire Tithe Award Register 1813-1882 

Over 250,000 records make up this new collection, which include details of taxes paid by residents to their local church. It’s a great resource to uncover Wiltshire land and property owners.
