    This should be fascinating to all Baptists and a boon for researchers.

    Trouble is that these records are limited to the London area. But presumably eventually there will be more. My ancestors were Welsh Quakers and Baptists, and it will be interesting when that day comes to see if I can find out more about them. Similarly, my British wife's ancestors have been Baptists for a number of generations, but we are not sure how far back. This kind of detective work is what makes genealogy interesting ... getting not just names and dates but some of the personal details about those who came before us.
