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

 

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.

 

Who was W.P. Phillimore?
Phillimore has played a huge part in the transcription and printing of marriage register, and by the time he died he had covered over 1200 parishes.

 

Possible Pitfalls in Using the Census
Many people don't realise that the census page images we see are actually transcripts of the household census forms, the details were copied into the books by the enumerators.
