Useful website links

There are many online transcriptions to Parish Registers but you should always, where possible, check the original sources as well. Try a Google search for the Parish where your Ancestors lived to see if there is a transcription or an index online. The County Archives, Family and/or Local History Societies may also have online catalogues of their publications. A thing to always remember is to quote your sources. This helps you go back over your work and also helps others in your family or those searching for like names.
