Jersey BMBs

The Bailiwick of Jersey, a British Crown dependency in the Channel Islands, has records for baptisms, marriages and burials by the Church of England, transcripts of which are now available from Findmypast.
They are:
Jersey Baptisms 1540-1915, 228,652 records,
Jersey Marriages 1542-1940, 124,778 records,
Jersey Burials 1541-1940, 155,641 records.

FMP also holds 14,342 records of Jersey Wills 1564-2000 in its collection.

The folks at Findmypast will please consider using the appropriate flag to publicize these new records and not the Union Jack.

Your readers might like to know that the transcripts now found on findmypast are derived from copies presented recently by jerripedia. These were initially only accessible at the Jersey Archives in St. Helier, having been compiled by members of the Channel Islands Family History Society. Images of the original registers from which these transcripts were derived have been for almost a year accessible through ancestry (although, their nominal indexing is atrocious!).
