England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland: Parish and Probate Records

A collection of parish and probate records in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland from the 1500s to the 1800s.

These databases are a collection of historical parish and probate registers from the countries of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. More than 15 million names in this collection can range in date from the early 1500s to the mid- to late-1800s. Some non-parish records may be included from as early as the twelfth century. Parish records–primarily christenings, marriages, and burials–provide the best source of vital record information in the centuries before civil registration. The records include baptisms/christenings, burials, marriages, gravestone inscriptions, obituaries, tax lists, wills, and other miscellaneous types of records. Also included are some records from non-conformist churches. All of the data was converted as it was originally presented in various published registers and books. For this reason, you will find interesting phonetic spellings and large descriptive tables of contents. for more click here
