This review is from: The Phillimore Atlas and Index of Parish Registers (None) (Hardcover)
I have just received The Phillimore Atlas & Index of Parish Registers.
First, the good bits; The usual excellent service from Amazon. The book arrived when I was told it would. Spot on. A near 40% saving on the full price. A good-looking item!
Now the not-so-good bits; I have been researching my family history for a little while, & have got to the stage where I now need to search pre-1837 i.e. Parish, records. Having read all the (rave) reviews about how helpful this Atlas/Index was in that direction, I decided to treat myself to a copy. Now I'm left wondering why.I won't go over the information contained in this book. See previous reviews for that. Suffice to say I found that the internet had already provided me with all the information this book provides, certainly for my own Counties of interest. Before anyone purchases a copy themselves, I suggest they contact The County record office for their area of interst. If the records they are looking for are not there, i'm sure the staff at the office will point them in the right direction. Otherwise, get a copy from the library. Which is exactly what I should have done first! This book would have been of use pre-internet days, but now? Sorry, not a well spent £30+
