There are 984,960 records available. The records have been transcribed from original parish records and bishop’s transcripts by Findmypast and the Nottinghamshire Family History Society.

Nottinghamshire is in the east Midlands of England, bordered by South Yorkshire to the northwest, Lincolnshire to the east, Leicestershire to the south, and Derbyshire to the west. The traditional county town is Nottingham.

Nottinghamshire is famously associated with the legend of Robin Hood and was certainly overseen by the sheriff of Nottingham. The county has been inhabited since Roman times and was once part of the Angle Kingdom of Mercia.

During Norman times the county developed malting and woollen industries. During the Industrial Revolution, the county relied on coal and iron ore. Nottinghamshire’s last mine, Thoresby Colliery, closed in July 2015.
