Mission Statement

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 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.


Sheffield Parish Registers are being indexed and placed online where they can be searched under either Baptism or Marriage records.

Indexing is ongoing for Sheffield Burial records.

Trade Directories continue to be updated to complete the existing databases. 

BMD Certificates is our latest project and will be ongoing. Please click on the links below to access the online database search pages.


The searchable Message Forum is there for anyone to ask for help with their research, knowledgeable genealogists will, I am sure, try to help with your requests.  The forum also allows you to search for names, places and other miscellaneous inquiries of interest relating to Sheffield, Yorkshire, the UK and abroad.

An extensive list of Genealogy Links and Getting Started are also a very good place to start if you are looking for information on Sheffield, England or genealogy references in general.

Indexers Welcome

Sheffield Indexers are always welcoming new transcribers who are willing to volunteer their time to transcribe material to be uploaded onto the site where it can be appreciated by so many researchers.

If you are interested in joining our team for the current projects of Indexing Burial Records or Indexing Parish Records, please contact Elaine Pickard for details.  If you are also interested in transcribing other records please mention them in your email.

If you have Birth, Marriage or Death Certificates and would like to share some or all of the information in them with fellow researchers, why not index them where they can be seen by your potential Rellies.  Our ongoing BMD Certificates Index will provide enough information to help a fellow family researcher with either sufficient information to send for the certificate themselves, or, if you leave an email address they could contact you direct for possible connections.

Please send an email to
Elaine Pickard for instructions and she will be pleased to help you get started with Birth, Marriage or Death Certificate templates and some simple instructions on how to fill in the template, which is in Excel. 

In the meantime, enjoy your research, with thanks from the Sheffield Indexers.

If you have any other suggestions for the site please contact me and we will certainly consider them.

For and on behalf of the Sheffield Indexers,

Elaine Pickard
