Findmypast adds England, Greater Manchester Baptisms 1571-1910

Numerically the largest addition to the Findmypast this week, 811,408 records, is a collection of baptism and christening records from 145 named parishes in the Diocese of Manchester.
You will perhaps recall that the corresponding records for marriages and burials were released on Findmypast in December. All were sourced from FamilySearch and many images of originals are linked to the index/transcripts.
There are now over 12 million records in the 20 Findmypast databases with Manchester in the title. By far the largest, over 9 million entries, is Manchester Rate Books 1706-1900.
