This month's cover feature (YFT issue 97, Dec 2010, pg 24) shows how parish records are becoming increasingly available online and on CD. This digital version of Wingfield: Its Church, Castle and College is a great way to access these vital records.
Starting off with a map and chapters containing short local histories, the bulk of the document is the 130 pages of baptism, marriage and burial entries. The baptisms are the most detailed, while information on marriages and burials ranges from name and date to ages, marital statuses and job. There's also a few pages of monumental inscriptions from the church graveyard and extracts from wills administered in the parish from 1375 to 1504.
You can search the document using the automatic search feature or the indexes for names, place names and subjects at the end.
