Some data from the Holywell-cum-Needingworth Parish Registers is available in the public domain (e.g. at Family Search or IGI) and I have used this in the People section of this website. Unfortunately there are significant errors and omissions in the currently available data.

The original registers themselves are stored in Huntingdon Archives, and available for reference there. Huntingdonshire Family History Society (HFHS) have an ongoing project to transcribe these Parish Registers and make them available on a disc. However at the time of writing there is no end date for the HFHS project, and even when it is available it will not be easily available to me to publish in the way I want to. Therefore I have started a project myself to digitise, transcribe, analyse, and publish the Holywell-cum-Needingworth Parish Registers on this website. So far I have managed to photograph all the registers, and transcribed about a half of them. I am hoping to obtain permission to make many of the images as well as the data available.

All images are reproduced by kind permission of Huntingdon Library and Archives. Further progress will be reported – I and hope to have at least something to show by the end of 2014.


Progress has been made. For the latest status on the Parish Registers see here.
