Parish registers are records of baptisms, marriages, and burials made by the Church. These records are a valuable resource for researching your family tree, as civil registration and census returns do not go back further than c.1840. Parish records can extend your research back to the time of King Henry VIII, with most records going back to the 1600s (and some going back to the 1500s!)

Transcripts are published by societies or individuals. S&N Genealogy have published these parish records when permitted to do so or when the records are out of copyright, and are always looking to increase the range of the publications.
