Parish registers are the main resource for English research prior to the census (1841) and Civil Registration (1837). With the proliferation of digitized records on the internet, this research is becoming much easier to access. Wills can also provide genealogical information, and it is surprising who made wills in the 1700s. Using these resources (if they have survived!), English research can be taken back as far as the late 1500s.

The poor are always with us – and they did leave records!
Were your ancestors poor? Or did they work with the poor?
There is a good chance that some of your ancestors will appear in the records of the poor, as about 30% of the English population was considered to be poor at any one time. And surprisingly, there are often more records of the poor than the more affluent of the time.
