New Manchester Records at FindMyPast

This week Find My Past [FMP] have added a massive 4.9 million Manchester rate book records to the collection

These new additions span from the 1790s to the 1940s and of course include places such as Stockport

As well as that there are an additional 215,002 rate book images, also from Greater Manchester, available to browse 

While the transcriptions cover all years ending in 1 and 6 between the 1790s and the 1940s, the browse-only images are from every year in between.

Although they're not searchable by name or address, you can filter results by year, location, council, and optional keywords.
