Are you searching for your ancestors in the English Parish Records?
The history of these records goes back to 1538 when a system was established for clergy to register all christenings, marriages, and burials. Because every person was assigned to a parish, regardless of their faith, the records hold a wealth of information for genealogists! English: Parish Records will guide you through the reading and interpreting of the records, the history affecting the registers, and discuss the other items that are included in the registers. You’ll also become familiar with the abbreviations and Latin terms found in the registers as well as the history of the Julian and Gregorian calendar systems and the Lost 11 Days.
