I've started to try and trace my Lancashire ancestry and am
with my great grandparents, Frederick Watkin and Elizabeth Harvey .
After going backwards and forwards through the St Cath's indexes several
times and allowing for all variations of spellings their marriage still
eludes me .I'm hoping to get to Lancashire in the next month to do some
research and would like to know if the parish registers for St Helens have
been filmed ,as late as the 1870's ,and if so where are copies held ?
The original marriage registers for St Helens (St Mary's) 1723-1902 are at
Lancashire Record Office
Preston PR1 2RE.
They are on microfilm at
St Helens Local History Library
