Nothing urgent but if anyone is going and willing to do some look ups before 1800 in Preston churches for baps/ marriages etc, please let me know.

Many thanks.

I now don't need the Preston churches...someone on Ancestry has posted the early tree going back to Lancaster that I was needing.

What I do need are some early Blackburn look ups for bap and marriage.

Hi Liz there are some Blackburn registers at Manchester

Pat - many thanks - I had seen that link and the churches I am interested in:

Wesleyan Assoc, Blackburn (seems most likely is Clayton St)
and
St Mary Cathedral, Blackburn are too early on there.

I have been enjoying myself on OPC St Mary Cathedral.

Can't find my way round the Preston Record Office website so well...
