Family Tree Essential Guides 3 - Getting beyond 1837

Learn how to use the parish records of baptisms, marriages and burials of 500 years of your ancestors in our mini guide.
Our goal when tracing our family trees is to go back as far in time as we can, and find as many of our ancestors as we can, for the fullest family tree possible. Parish registers are the records that can help you do just this.
Parish registers stretch back five centuries – to the time of King Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell. And – most importantly for family historians – they include ancestors from all walks of life – paupers to aristocrats and everyone in between. Search them to find your kin.
