This form is for an affiliate library search


The Society is an Affiliate Library for the Church of Latter Saints (CLDS). That gives us access to their digital images which are not otherwise generally available. The images are mostly of Parish Registers, but do include other items of interest. Members visiting our Research Centre can use the public computers to access those images.  Please note that there are no digital images of Parish Registers for Northumberland and Durham  available through an Affiliate Library Search.

For those members who cannot visit our Research Centre we provide a Search facility. Use the form below to provide the necessary details. We will carry out a search for the image on your behalf. The results are likely to be:

Success – we will have found the image you wanted, and we will send you a digital copy. Whilst we make no charge for this facility we do suggest that members make a donation (see to help meet with the costs of maintaining our Research Centre .

Failure – we will have failed to find the image you wanted. This probably means that the microfilm you are asking for has not yet been scanned.

Bishops’ Transcripts – we can confirm that the images are available, but you will have to search them yourself. The images are available at

Rejected – you will have failed to provide the necessary information. You will need to do the necessary basic research yourself; and then we may be able to locate the digital image for you.

The digital images are NOT indexed and it is essential that members provide full details of the original entry. This will normally be: Parish, type of event, date, and name. We will not carry out blanket searches. Please note that very few films have yet been scanned.
