Probate Records - the only source of information before Parish Records
Once the maker of the will has died, his/her executor must have the will 'proved'. You can trace ancestors back even further using these records.

 

Reading Old Handwriting
Palaeography is the study of old handwriting. At first glance, many early records look illegible to the modern reader.

 

A Short History of Parish Records
As we have seen, both Civil Registration and Census Returns run out when you get back to c.1840, and rarely provide information relevant before 1800. At this stage you need to turn to Parish Records.

 

Can gravestones tell you anything about your ancestry?
Monumental Inscriptions (the writing on gravestones) can tell you alot about an ancestor, but you'll probably find more information in a burial register or death record.
