Parish registers have been kept at the local level across England since the mid-1500s. Due to this long and relatively stable tradition, these records are central to English genealogical research as they are often one of the only sources for finding families and individuals in England before the start of civil registration in 1837.

=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
*Some parish records might have been lost over time. Bishop's Transcripts can also be a good source of information
*Note that marriages often took place in the parish where the bride resided
*Sometimes a person was born out of wedlock ("illegitimate"), and may have been baptised under the mother's maiden or surname, so search under that name--if known.
