New release from Findmypast: Berkshire Baptisms Index

Over 31,000 additional records coving the parishes of Beenham St Mary, Bray St Michael, Cholsey St Mary, Kintbury St Mary, Reading St Giles, Reading St Mary, Remenham St Nicholas and Tilehurst St Michael are now available to search. Each record comprises a transcript of the original baptism register.

The index spans the years 1538 to 1917 and will allow you to learn when and where your relative was baptised as well as the names of your ancestor’s parents. These names may help you to delve further back into your family tree. Some records may reveal such interesting details as the mother’s marital status and whether the child was an orphan or foundling.
