The Find My Past collection consists of transcripts that have been created by members of the Lincolnshire Family History Society and these records are made available through an agreement with the Federation of Family History Societies.
Using transcripts as a source of genealogical information is quite common when compiling a family tree, however it should be remember that they may not include all the information on the original records and also the transcriber may have inadvertently made errors. Of course consulting the original documents is much the preferred option, but this is not always possible. When writing up your family history you should always source every piece of information and it is recommended that you record that the information was gained from a transcript and details of who made the transcription. Having said the above I use transcripts in my own research duly sourced.
This collection comprises of 49,000+ marriage records from over 200 parishes. The time period covers 1700 – 1837. Information about the parishes covered are on the FindMyPast website.
