    I see from the link that Cumbria and Shropshire parish records are included but I don’t see any further info there or deeper in to familysearch as to which parishes in those counties. My research has given me a wee bit of place name knowledge but only in a limited area for each county.
    Does anybody have further info as to the actual parishes?

    I guess we'll find out on the day? I am hoping for some specific Huntingdon and Shropshire parishes/areas ....

    Me too in both Shropshire (around the Ellesmere and Whitchurch area) and Cumbria (Whitehaven, Maryport and country villages in between).
