bulletAccess to Archives records for the Bury Parish in the Lancashire Record Office - I have collated just over 4,000 of these records and surname indexed them for the Parish of Bury during the Easter weekend 2004. There will be some missing, some repeated and several mistakes - they are meant as a guide only. The files are very large (60-70 pages) so it is probably easier and faster to right click on the link and save them to your hard disk before you open them, they are pdf files and you will need Adobe Acrobat reader to open them. I do hope they help and I would love to hear of any great finds!
