This review is from: The Phillimore Atlas and Index of Parish Registers (None) (Hardcover)
The information in the book gives a much clearer idea about what is available. If you are researching a family tree before 1837 it can be a bit daunting because you know someone was born;married or died but don't know if the records are available and if so where. This book answers that question.
The most amazing thing for me was putting place names and parishes on a map - I had been researching my family and different parish/ place names were showing up but now I could see on the map how close they were.
It is, however, only a source guide - "this is the information that is available and these are the people who hold copies of that information" - but it is an opportunity to confirm knowledge and develop your family tree.
A great book and thoroughly recommended.
