Parish Records

I am Estelle, the Genes product assistant, and I'm here to tell you about the new records we have just added to the site. We now have 35 million Parish Records which mean you can search baptisms, marriages and burials as far back as 1538. Until now our earliest UK records were the birth, marriage and death indexes that began in 1837.

I am Estelle and I have been working for Genes Reunited since 2004. I am also a keen genealogist and have been tracing my own family history since 1995. Needless to say this job is like a dream come true working for a family history website!
