View Parish Registers

Online or on CD-ROM?Online or on CD-ROM?

There are two ways to view Parish Registers - you can view them on CD-ROM by purchasing them from a company specialising in genealogy (S&N Genealogy Supplies, for example), or you can view them online through websites like TheGenealogist, which offers many resources for family historians to use. We have compared the two:

Viewing Parish Registers on CD-ROM


Viewing Parish Registers Online

  • CD-ROM of all registers in a Parish on a particular date, which you can search as many times as you want and at your own leisure.
  • Bookmarked, searchable, and easily printable.
  • Just pay for the searches you need.
  • Easily searchable by Forename, Surname, Date and Parish/Church.
  • Search census records, bmd records, and more.

So how should I choose to view Parish Registers - on CD-ROM or Online?

If you want the flexibility of searching not just Parish Registers, but other records too, then an online subscription may be the best option for you. This can cost you as little as £4.66 per month, and you may find ancestors that have previously eluded you! Buying the copies/transcriptions of the registers on CD-ROM is best if you have alot of research to do using Parish Registers. The CD-ROMs are bookmarked, searchable, and easily printable.
