The Cambridgeshire baptism records cover about 80 parishes and other registrar places in the English county. It also includes Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire births registered at the British Lying-In Hospital in London.
The Cambridgeshire baptisms records are part of our ongoing parish records collection project. This unique collection brings together the records of baptisms, marriages, burials and related records registered across England and Wales and has been made available on Findmypast in association with the Federation of Family History Societies member societies, the Society of Genealogists as well as other individual organisations and contributors.
The Cambridgeshire parish records were transcribed by the Cambridgeshire Family History Society. The records are transcript only which means they do not show an image of the original parish record but do contain every detail found there. Additional records have been provided by The College of Arms, the official heraldic authority for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and much of the Commonwealth including Australia and New Zealand.
