Researching your family history

With genealogy becoming more popular than ever, we've made it easier to trace your relatives with our online search and buy facility.

North Lincolnshire Registration Service has all local historical indexes accessible online, on this website. This means you can search for your ancestors free of charge online and order copies of certificates relating to yourself or your family members.

The register office holds all birth, death and marriage registers for North Lincolnshire from 1837 to the current date.

 Search for and order birth, death and marriage certificates online

The online system is updated annually once all records are complete. If the entry you are searching for is in the current year, or the year before, and is not shown in the indexes, please contact us.

Scunthorpe Reference Library holds many interesting resources to help your search. 

All our online indexes have been transcribed from the original entries and in some instances, the handwriting has been difficult to decipher, so there may be variations in spellings or even the first letters of names. If you are searching for family history purposes, you may wish to try other ways of spelling names. 

Please contact us if you have any queries.
