East York FHS records

Post by searching » Sat Nov 02, 2013 2:32 pm

I have been told that there are plans to make available pre 1837 East York records on line. Is this true or wishfull thinking ? I know Familysearch and Ancestry have entered into an agreement but Familysearch records are far from complet.

Does anyone know where I could find records for Weaverthorpe and Helperthorpe, I just cannot seem to find them under these names so I thought maybe they come under a district or such.
Would appreciate any help
Cheers Tracy

Hi Tracy.

You may find some pre 1837 parish records on Family Search

Records after the September quarter of 1837 can be found on FreeBMD

Post 1837 Weaverthorpe and Helperthorpe records are listed as part of Driffield Registration District
http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/dist ... field.html
It's not possible to identify one Driffield District parish from another, unless you buy the relevant certificate.
