These photos were taken in September 2002. In addition to normal tourist activities (and exploring churchyards) I did some genealogy research at North Yorkshire County Record Office and Northallerton Library. Bed and breakfast accommodation is just a few minutes walk away, in South Parade and Almond Grove.
If your ancestors or their siblings were in Yorkshire, see Findmypast's superb Yorkshire Collection with images of many original parish registers, plus the Prerogative and Exchequer Courts of York Probate Index 1688-1858 and York Peculiars Probate Index 1383-1883.
Indexes on this Web site include names of hundreds of people born in Yorkshire. Some are also listed in 'Yorkshire Genealogy'.
