Viewing the Records Online

Transcribing parish records is a huge task, and many companies are now beginning the transcribing and indexing of Parish Records, and then including them onto their websites for people to view. One company, S&N Genealogy Supplies, have already started working on transcribing Parish Records, and these are available at TheGenealogist. There are over 7 million records available to search, and this number is continuing to grow.

Viewing Parish Records online is easy. Websites like TheGenealogist have these records available for you to view from as little as £5. They are searchable by surname, forename, date, and the church/parish (to see an example search, click here). With the aid of both volunteers and overseas transcribers, more records are continuing to be added.
