Welcome to our online database search facility for public use NOT MEMBERS

This is a new feature (September 2023). The full details are only open to members of the society, and this is NOT the Members version.

The database has all the data the society has transcribed since 1980, which is in excess of 1.6 million parish and other records.

The publication of this data would not have been possible without the full support of the City of Doncaster Archives, to whom we are very grateful.

The data contained here is owned by Doncaster and District Family History Society, who hold the rights to the data. See below for our copyright statement.

If you want to have full access to all the information we hold, then please consider joining Doncaster and District Family History Society, by going to Membership on the top menu bar or by clicking this link.


The database is separated, for ease, into the main parish record subjects, baptisms (christenings) marriage,  burials, health registers and school records.

However, as this is the public search facility you won’t see the information we have, only that we hold information in the categories listed above, under the names that appear, if any. The findings will appear below, but they will be blurred out.

Give it a go and see if your ancestors are in our database, and if they are, why not join us.
