Leicestershire like other counties has a unique composition. Your research into Leicestershire ancestors will depend on where in Leics they were born, lived or died. The City of Leicester is obviously the central point for modern day records but not necessarily for older ones. The main towns are Hinckley, Market Bosworth, Ashby de la Zouch, Oadby and Wigston,Melton Mowbray,Lutterworth,Loughborough, Coalville, Market Harborough and don't forget that Leicestershire was joined at the hip with our neighbouring county of Rutland (England's smallest county).If you require any help in where your records might be held apart from at Leicestershire Records Office in Wigston please get in touch!
