Nottinghamshire Parish Registers on SoG Data Online
There are now over 90 parishes included in the collection of Nottinghamshire Parish Register Transcriptions on SoG Data Online. There is a mixture of christenings, marriages and burials. The exact coverage for each parish is dependent on the progress with the transcription noting more is added on a regular basis. These are being transcribed by John Mellors from microfiche of the original registers available at the SoG library.
The full list of parishes and their coverage can be found in the pdf on the website at http://www.sog.org.uk/search-records/whats-on-sog-data-online/.

I wrote this blog originally for the Society of Genealogists and it was published in 2016. It is no longer accessible on the SoG website so I have updated it and published it here.
