I have traced one of my families back to Yorkshire, England. I am wondering how NEHGS can assist me with obtaining records specifically from the parish of Guiseley. Since I can not affort to travel there. I am a member of NEHGS and very happy with your services and hope I can do British Research at NEHGS.
At NEHGS we have an extensive rare book collection available to our membership. Within the shelves of this collection you will find a volume by William Easterbrook Preston and Joseph Hambley Rowe, A Transcript of the Early Registers of the Parish of Guiseley in the County of York 1584 to 1720, together with a transcript of the Early Registers of the Chapelry of Horsforth 1620 to 1720. (Bradford, England: Percy Lund, Humphries & Co. Ltd., 1913) [NEHGS rare book call # PR/GUI/7]. This is just one of many published British parish records we possess at NEHGS. You can also call the NEHGS Microtext Department (617) 536-5740 ext. 239 and rent microfilm for ($5.50 each) for the following LDS Family History Library microfilms.
