The society’s baptism project aims to deliver accurate transcriptions of baptism entries from Berkshire’s parish baptism registers (not simply an index to them). This project is ongoing and aims to eventually cover all parishes and possible event periods.

Some Bishops' Transcripts are included, especially where these entries differ from those in the original baptism register or where gaps exist in the periods covered by the register.
