5 His­tor­i­cal Record Col­lec­tions

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEST WEBSITES - fam­il­y­search.org/ search/ col­lec­tion/ list

My rec­om­mended route into the vast Fam­il­y­Search moth­er­ship is via this his­tor­i­cal col­lec­tions page. It’s a sim­ple list­ing of all 2,237 col­lec­tions, which you can then nar­row down by era (pre 1700) and place. At time of writ­ing there were 77 re­lat­ing to the UK that had at least par­tial cov­er­age of the 17th cen­tury. The ma­jor­ity are parish reg­is­ters ar­ranged by county, plus bish­ops’ tran­scripts, non­con­formist ma­te­rial, mar­riage bonds, wills and more.
