Broken Record


The Ancestry.co.uk scans of the Parish Records for Swillington, Yorkshire, for the period 1697-1703 are actually those of Thorner, which is 8 miles north of Swillington. Fortunately, Findmypast.co.uk has the Bishop's Transcript for the period so I noticed the discrepency.

That's didn't happen until after I'd spent two hours trying to figure out which of two candidates to be one of my ancestors was the correct one (answer: the one from Swillington, not the one from Thorner).
