Excerpts from the Parish Registers of Garton-on-the-Wolds, East Riding, Yorkshire:

Original registers deposited at Humberside Co Records Office, County Hall, Beverly  Registers for 1629/30 in English, 1631 begins in Latin. Mandatory registers started in 1653-54.  No local marriage index.  There may well be some omissions and errors, as these were transcribed from microfilmed copies of the original handwritten records, many of them in Latin, all hard to read. --contributed by Debra Cohig
