registration of all births, marriages and deaths began in
Before civil registration we must rely on church records. Genfindit can
search for and if successful transcribe church records provided you can supply the name, parents' names (if known), religious denomination and
parish or location where the birth, marriage or burial occurred.
Copies of the church registers are researched at the Society of
Genealogists in London, London Metropolitan Archives or LDS microfilms. Due to the fragile condition of many the records the
archives may not or will not allow photocopying of the parish registers they hold
and can only transcribe the entry.
Prices below include a search and record
transcription or copy (if available) if found by our researchers. If we are provided with
insufficient information to enable a search (after liaising with
you) or records are not available at the above archives we will advise you and refund 75% of the fees.
