Baptist work was started in Ireland by the middle of the 17th century.
By 1653, there were 10 churches (9 in the south and 1 in the north).
A baptism record is any type of record that states the date and place an individual was baptised into a church.
A birth record is any type of record or certificate that states the date and place an individual was born.
As the provenances of the records are defined by historical, rather than modern boundaries, areas now outside of today’s Yorkshire are also covered, such as County Durham.
On completion this will be the most comprehensive online repository of Yorkshire family history records anywhere in the world.
Covering a wide area and timeframe, many of Yorkshire’s most famous sons and daughters can be found in the records.
Every church should adopt safeguarding policy statements for children, young people, and adults at risk.
The Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland (ABC, ABCi and ABCI) is a Baptist Christian denomination based in Ireland.
