The Sheffield Indexers' mission is to provide, via the Internet, accurate indexed transcriptions of
genealogical records for access by all, free of charge.
About the Indexers
The original site was first conceived in 2001 by Elaine Pickard. The intention was to index
genealogical material, primarily specific to
Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, especially Parish Registers and Burial information, into a simple to
access format for people who
who are interested in Sheffield Genealogy and
have difficulty in obtaining the needed source material.
Access to the material is to be free of charge and that all transcriptions
of records and management of the site would be from voluntary sources for the
benefit of the genealogical community.
The Sheffield Indexers are pleased to offer the
original online data for
1841 Census Index that was made possible by a large group of volunteers in the Winter of
2004-2005. In addition we have
