Welcome to the SBLHA website.
South Bradford Local History Alliance is made up of
- Low Moor Local History Group
- Wibsey Local History Group
- Wyke Local History Group
For some time now members of these groups have been transcribing parish and other records relating to the areas the various groups cover and these transcriptions are gradually becoming available on this site. You can find out much more about each group under the 'About Us' tab above.
Quite a lot of transcribing has been done, but a lot of it of it needs checking. We are always pleased to hear from people at home and abroad who would like to join our team. If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

The above links will take you to the various sections. Links to some pages may be 'greyed out'. This means there are not yet any available records for that section. Clicking 'Home' on any page will bring you back here.
The onsite search facility and the remote database search can be found under the 'Search' link top right.
Enjoy your stay!
Members of Low Moor Local History Group have been working with West Yorkshire Archive Service (WYAS) to improve the group's knowledge of important issues such as legislation and copyright. This has helped them consider the scope of items which can be collected and how best to archive them. They have now received Accreditation with the WYAS and join a growing number of community groups who are working together to ensure our heritage is secured for future generations. See http://nowthen.org for more details.
• The searchable Vital Records Database was launched on the 12th November 2009. It currently contains 962371 people.
After only a few short months of our existence, we were recognised by 'Your Family Tree' magazine as one of the top three family history resources on the internet for West Yorkshire, along with CalverleyInfo and the Coal Mining Resource Centre.
