Task List[edit | edit source]

Task List

Instructions[edit | edit source]

Step 1[edit | edit source]

Go to the parish pages (links are on the Task List) and find the "Church records" heading. Click "Edit source" next to the heading.

We will be adding the correct years for the Buckinghamshire baptisms, marriages, and burials indexes (found on FindMyPast).
The code (FMP) code that we will be changing looks like:
|-
| bgcolor="#ffffcc" | '''FMP''' 
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-baptism-index '''1536-1918''']
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-marriage-index '''1534-1933''' ]
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-burial-index '''1536-1992''']
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | <br>
|-
It is found in this part of the code:

Step 2[edit | edit source]

1. Go to www.findmypast.com/articles/buckinghamshire-index-parish-list.

This page lists the years that the FindMyPast Buckinghamshire collection has for each parish for baptisms, marriages, and burials.

2a. Scroll down to the parish you are currently working on underneath Buckinghamshire baptisms.

For example:
The parish of Addington has baptism records from 1576 to 1817 in the FindMyPast collection.

2b. Go back to the code and change the year range on the first line of the FindMyPast code to match what the table says.

For example:
The parish of Addington would have the baptism years 1576-1817 instead of what is current listed, 1538-1917.
|-
| bgcolor="#ffffcc" | '''FMP''' 
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-baptism-index '''1576-1817''']
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-marriage-index '''1534-1933''' ]
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-burial-index '''1536-1992''']
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | <br>
|-


3a. Go back to the Buckinghamshire parish list page. Scroll down to the parish you are currently working on underneath Buckinghamshire marriages.

For example:
The parish of Addington has marriage records 1576 to 1813 in the FindMyPast collection.

3b. Go to the code and change the year range on the second line of the FindMyPast code to match what the table says.

For example:
The parish of Addington would have marriage year range 1576-1813 instead of what is currently listed, 1538-1931.
|-
| bgcolor="#ffffcc" | '''FMP''' 
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-baptism-index '''1576-1817''']
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-marriage-index '''1576-1813''' ]
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-burial-index '''1536-1992''']
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | <br>
|-

4a. Go back to the Berkshire parish list page. Scroll down to the parish you are currently working on underneath Buckinghamshire burials.

For example:
The parish of Addington has burial records from 1576 to 1817 in the FindMyPast collection.

4b. Go to the code and change the year range on the third line of the FindMyPast code to match what the table says.

For example:
The parish of Addington would have burial years 1576-1817 instead of what is currently listed, 1538-1966.

| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-marriage-index '''1576-1813''' ]

|-

Step 3[edit | edit source]

Put "Changing the FindMyPast year ranges in the table" in the Summary box and then click "Save page".

If Parish Not Listed[edit | edit source]

Not Listed in 1 Table[edit | edit source]

If the parish was not listed in one of the tables, that means that the FindMyPast collection does not have any baptism/marriage/burial records from that parish. If this is the case, put a <br> where that line of code is:

For example, if the parish is not listed in the baptism table:
|-
| bgcolor="#ffffcc" | '''FMP''' 
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ffcccc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-marriage-index '''1534-1933''' ]
| bgcolor="#ccffcc" | <br>
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | [https://search.findmypast.com/search-world-Records/buckinghamshire-burial-index '''1536-1992''']
| bgcolor="#ccffff" | <br>
|-

Not Listed in Any Table[edit | edit source]

1. If the parish is not listed in any of the tables, that means that no FindMyPast collection has records from that parish. If this is the case, delete the entire FindMyPast code (7 lines of code) and the |- above it:

Buckinghamshire Part 2 Img 8.png

The new code will look something like:

Buckinghamshire Part 2 Img 9.png


2. Also delete the FMP line of code here and the |- above it (found right underneath the "Church Records" heading):

The new code will look something like:
