Key Bedfordshire resources
Bedfordshire and Luton Archives and Records Service based in Bedford was founded in 1913, and was the first County record office in England (the earliest records held date back to 1166). All of the pre-1812 parish registers have been transcribed, indexed, and published in book form and as microfiche (details of cost and availability are given here). There is an online index of prisoners in Bedford Gaol which has in excess of 40,000 entries, and the Community Archives are a growing resource of local historical detail.
