Database Search

Search over 1.2 million public records. Our members can access advanced search options.

This form allows a search of all MLFHS databases for a specific surname and (optionally) a forename. If a forename or initial is specified the search will include all records beginning with that surname such that entering John will produce matches for John, John T, John Thomas and so on. Entering J will produce matches for J, James, John, John William etc.

Results will appear as total counts for each database.

Unique resources for members

Join us and get access to our extensive databases. We specialise in indexing local resources which you will not find on other sites. How about virtually all the recorded memorials for Manchester's old churchyards? Or institutional records: Bolton Workhouse creed books, admissions to the schools for the blind and the deaf? Or the early motor vehicle registrations in Salford? There are hundreds of sources and over 3.4 million name references already and new data is being added all the time.
