Free Heirlines Advice – #5 – British Research (England, Wales, and Scotland).
5. British Research (England, Wales, and Scotland).
British parish and civil records are available on microfilm at the Family History Library here in Salt Lake City from the 1500’s and earlier, up to the 1900’s. Your local Family History Center can help you access these records through their inter-library loan system.
Heirlines knows how to read the old handwriting that was used on British records. If you have trouble deciphering the script, we can do the research for you. We can search the old church registers, probate records, military sources, and heraldry records (coats of arms) to learn about your ancestry in that part of the World.
