Meg Greenwood is available for lookup of the following resources. All requests to Meg must have WIGPages REQUEST, followed by the SURNAME, in the subject line. In response, Meg can send transcriptions or JPG images. Please be specific in your request: surname, forename, and area. A blanket search for all surname references should be avoided.
Births, Marriages and Deaths : 1855 - 1875 plus 1881 and 1891. Can scan and send images if requested.
Censuses 1841, 51, 61, 71, 81 & 91 for all parishes. 1881 is the Latter Day Saints set of CDs. I do not have the Indexes for the 1841, see parish lookups for those resources. Send Head of Household Index numbers for 1851.
Old Parish Record Microfilms for all parishes. Not all parishes have deaths/burials. All names from these films should be found on the IGI, other data such as residence or occupation is sometimes included in the filmed books. Need parish, name and estimated date.
