The Census - What information can I find in each year?
A census was taken every 10 years from 1810, but were only useful to genealogists as of 1841.

 

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

 

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.

 

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.
