Furness Registers

The society is very near to completing publication of all the Lonsdale North registers from inception to 1837
The Cartmel BT’s are being compared to the PR’s and will hopefully be completed by the end of 2014
A team from the Society is completing the remainder and also working on recently discovered BT’s for Broughton and Ulverston
