The new parish register search

21 Oct have added a new search page to their site. This new search focuses on the parish registers in their collection, including the recently added London Parish Registers.

The new search page enables you to search just the parish registers on their site, including not just the London Parish Registers mentioned above, but also Pallot’s Marriage and Baptism indexes and the British Isles Vital Records Index (known on Ancestry as the England & Wales Christening Records and England & Wales Marriage Records).

As well as these major collections, it also covers the many other smaller collections of extracted parish records, that I tend to overlook. The new search page does a great job of drawing all the different collections together.

      It is a great new search tool bringing together lots of smaller collections that I wouldn’t usually look at. It sounds like you are doing better at finding your people than me.
