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.

 

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.

 

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.
