Opportunity to register an interest in family history

IS there any connection between Church Registers and Bob Dylan? – there is at St Mary’s Church in Claxby.

The church has borrowed the baptism and burial registers from 1813 and marriage registers from 1756 especially for this weekend’s Churches Festival event.

So if you are interested in your family’s history and have connections with Claxby or Normanby le Wold go along to inspect the registers between 10am and 4pm.

As for the Bob Dylan connection, curate Jamie Mackay is a Bob Dylan enthusiast and invites other Dylan enthusiasts to a service that will incorporate the music of the icon at 10.30am on Sunday.

Although you can’t consult the registers at the same time as the service, you could go early or stay afterwards and do so.
