Don't put any names in just a year and Selby ~ that's how I did it.

Does this work ?

No! Do you go to 'Marriages & Divorces' or just use the general search? Also, do you put in the year for event or marriage or both?

Anyway, I still got the transcription but no image or link to an image.

Step by step ;D

On the home page click search ~ don't put anything in the search boxes

Next page: click on births/marriage/death and parish records ~ don't add anything in search boxes

Click marriages and divorces

Then edit search: just put in 1767 and '0' years give or take ( or whatever year you need)

Next line: the 'WHERE' box should have Britain written there, add Selby, Yorkshire in the box next to it.
Click search
You should see an alphabetical list of all marriages now.

If there is an image ~ there should be a camera. If you know the date, click on any marriage in that year and find it by scrolling back/forward through the pages. It may be transcribed wrongly
