Parish Registers are a vast, important but widely scattered archive. They are essential to the family historian, providing the only written record of the vast majority of our ancestors who left but three brief mentions - a baptism, a marriage and a burial.

This guide to parish register, now in its third edition, and covering England, Scotland and Wales, is a vital, time-saving tool that has become universally known as 'the genealogist's bible'.

The Atlas includes the famous county 'parish' maps, which show pre-1832 parochial boundaries, colour coded probate jurisdictions, starting dates of surviving registers, and churches and chapels, where relevant.

Topographical maps face each 'parish' map, and show the contemporary road system and other local features, to help deduce the likely movement of people beyond the searcher's starting point.

The Index lists the parishes, with grid reference to the county maps. It indicates the present whereabouts of original registers and copies, and whether a parish is included in other indexes. It also gives registration districts and census information.

This new edition has seen the introduction of a map of the whole of the country showing the county boundaries before 1830. Another major change, is that of information in the Index has been the swapping of details regarding marriage indexes with that of census indexes.

Thus, in this invaluable guide, the user may quickly find answers to such questions as:

  • Have the registers been deposited?
  • Where may they be found?
  • What outside dates do they cover?
  • Have they been copied on indexes, and by whom?
