We are pleased to announce another new resource on this site: the Bromsgrove Apprenticeships Index. This index lists around 1500 appenticeships entered into with employers/masters within the Bromsgrove jurisdiction between 1637 and 1813.

It covers apprenticeship papers found in the parish chest of St John's Church, Bromsgrove as well as names from the Churchwardens account books. This new index includes some entries not included in the larger Worcestershire Apprenticeship Index held at the Hive. Note: Bromsgrove-born apprentices indentured to masters elsewhere may be found in this Worcestershire Index.

To access this index, login and follow the link in the 'Resources' box on the lefthand side. These transcripts have been kindly produced by volunteer Bob Lampitt with assistance from Jenny Townshend and Emma Townshend.


Where's the Login?

Due to the volume of spoof registrations, the login facility has been suspended. All resources that previously required registration and login are now publicly accessible.

The North Worcestershire Family History Forum has also been suspended.

A new website for Midlands Ancestors' Bromsgrove Branch will be launched later this year. Please bear with us while we migrate to a new site.
