Records surviving in the parish chest will often solve your brick wall problems, including: 'Where did my ancestor come from before here?' or "Who is the father of that illegitimate child?" In this detailed guide, family historian Paul Milner explains how and why the records were created, how changing laws affected who was and was not included, what the records look like and what information they contain. After showing examples of numerous records, the guide explains how and where to access the records (online, microfilm, originals or in print).

Here is a practical guide that will help family researchers solve their problems, and put them into historical context.
