The Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society are delighted to announce the completion of the CD of baptisms for St Chad’s RC Church, Cheetham Hill, Manchester, covering the period 1772-1893.

St Chad’s is the Catholic mother church of Manchester with its origins in the mid 18th century, and spawned the daughter parishes of St Mary’s, Mulberry Street (The Hidden Gem), and St Augustine’s before relocating to its present site on Cheetham Hill.

The new CD contains transcripts, indexes and original scans of the first twelve volumes of baptism registers and will be an invaluable resource for anybody researching their early Catholic ancestors in Manchester.

The CD can be purchased from the MLFHS Bookshop.
