How to Use the Record
Why the Record Was Created
Church of England parish registers are one of the most reliable and accurate family history sources before July 1837. Information in parish registers and Bishop's Transcripts can be verified against each other. Names and spellings sometimes vary between Parish Registers and Bishop's Transcripts. Bishop's Transcripts may also omit years or part of years or may be incomplete according to Diocesan practice and preservation.
