I have been doing some family research and my research may suggest that some of my ancestors were from a small village called Thorganby in Yorkshire, England.
I have read the history of the village here: https://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/yorks/east/vol3/pp112-120#fns
The article suggests that the primary church for the village was St. Helen's Church of England but there might have been a few non-conformist village members too.
I found the records from the church here: https://borthcat.york.ac.uk/index.php/pr-thorg They seem to be the original records created by the church at the time.
FindMyPast and FamilySearch both have claimed to index the records. https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Thorganby,_Yorkshire_Genealogy
- Are the indexed images of the original records primary sources? How would I reference those?
- How do I know if the original church records held at Borthwick Institute for Archives, University of York don't have any gaps?
