UK Parish Baptism, Marriage and Burial Records

A collection of parish records in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland from the 1500s to the 1900s.

Parish records–primarily baptisms, marriages, and burials–are the best source of vital record information before the nineteenth century. Before Civil Registration began in 1837 key events in a person’s life were typically records by the Church rather than the State. Starting in the sixteenth century, parish records are some of the longest running records available. The databases in this collection are composed of both transcriptions with links to original records as well as compilations and indexes created of the records. The millions of records found here come from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and can range in date from the early 1500s to the mid- to late-1900s. Also included are some records from non-conformist churches. Some 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
