How Findmypast’s Parish Records Can Transform Your British Family History – July 25, 2019

I saw this yesterday on FindMyPast – How Findmypast’s Parish Records Can Transform Your British Family History – July 25, 2019: https://blog.findmypast.com/exclusive-parish-records-2639337616.html.

When it comes to online church records for the UK, we won’t be beaten.

Church or parish records are some of the best resources you can use to take your British Isles family tree back further. In many cases, you’ll be able to go as far back as the 1500s, when King Henry VIII was on the throne. These records were taken by church officials in every corner of Britain and cover the most important milestones in your family’s history.

Search for family in parish records

With parish records, you can unearth details on your ancestors’ baptisms, marriages and burials. They also usually include information about other family members like parents, making it easy to jump back an additional generation in your family tree with a single record.
