5 Historical Record Collections
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.
