St Wilfrid and St Mary RC Preston
« on: Wednesday 14 November 18 11:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Does anyone know whether/where I can access baptismal records for the above churches online?

Looking for Seed family records 1840s.

Many thanks,

As with a number of RC parishes, it looks like the registers are still held by the church, with an index/transcript at Lancs Archives

https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/media/67392/P.pdf

Some Lancs catholic records are slowly starting to appear on the Lancs OPC website (http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/index.html).

One of the best sources for Lancs Catholic ancestors ( I have many in my own family), are to be found in the Lancashire Register Collection Books published by the Catholic Record Society. They can be found online in archive.org. They don't cover the Preston parishes, but do have many Seed entries in the surrounding areas.

Many thanks - I have tried to find the Register Collection Books on archive.org, but with no success as yet!

Does anyone know if there is a look-up service at Lancashire Record Office?
