Catholic records - Southwark

Post by VALLMO9 »

Last year someone on the WDYTYR Forum needed to research Roman Catholic records for Southwark. I can't recall the Forum member name.

Today FMP have added exclusive records from the Archdiocese of Southwark to their Catholic Heritage Archive.

BAPTISMS: 213,000 records
CONFIRMATIONS: 126,000 records
MARRIAGES: 52,000 records
