Parish Locator Program


Remember that ol' Myrt is attempting to learn more about doing ENGLISH genealogical research? While awaiting my confirmation of registration for the class at, I've been looking around the internet at some options. I stumbled across the PARISH LOCATOR PROGRAM

"This UK Parish Locator program is freeware and will run on Windows 95/98, ME, NT, Windows 2000 & Windows XP. The Database is available to users of other operating systems as a CSV file. The Windows program enables you to locate any one of over 15,000 UK parishes. It will produce a list of parishes in any County or a list of parishes within a given radius of any other parish [...]"

When searching for a parish, for records of christening, marriage or burial, we sometimes must expand our search to include the surrounding areas, in ever-widening circles. Typically, folks didn't move too far from home base, unless they chose to really pull up stakes and emigrate.

Happy family tree climbing!
