Berkshire Marriage Index

Berkshire Marriage Index (BMI)

The Marriage Index contains Marriages from 1538 to 1837 only. Later years are covered by civil registration and census returns etc.

At July 2003 there were more than 95,000 entries in the Berkshire Marriage Index produced by the Berkshire Family History Society. The parishes and periods included in this Marriage Index are shown below. 

The column in bold type shows our contribution of just over 63,000 records, which have been checked against the original Parish Registers. The other entries are in the process of being checked and will be added to the main database ASAP. Parishes that where formally in Berkshire and now in Oxfordshire are on the North Berks Marriage Index compiled by Oxfordshire Family History Society.

We offer a postal research service for searching Marriages in the following Parishes:
