Yorkshire, England Online Resources

I found these two sites run by Peter Ward while researching Yorkshire, England.

Peter has many wills from Yorkshire transcribed here: http://www.willtranscriptions.co.uk/  .

And then at the other site http://bmd-cert-exch-site.ourwardfamily.com/ it appears people are sharing vital records from Yorkshire.

Don’t forget to check the Yorkshire BMD indexes at: http://www.yorkshirebmd.org.uk/. Here you can check for your ancestors and order copies of the certificates, if you can locate a bank that will sell you a certified money order in sterling pounds.

An absolutely wonderful site on Yorkshire, with many resources: http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/YKS/index.html .

The site has a separate page for the Otley, West Yorkshire area: http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/YKS/WRY/Otley/

The Gravestone Photographic Resource is indexing and taking photos of Yorkshire cemeteries: http://www.gravestonephotos.com/public/area.php?area=yorkshire

I am researching the following surnames from Baildon, West Riding Yorkshire: Ellison, Cooper, Hudson.

Some of my Ellison’s from Baildon settled in Ontario, Canada and in Philadelphia, PA. My direct branch settled in Cleveland, OH and then Michigan.
