The aim of the parish history section should be to explain the ecclesiastical and civil parish history of the place and subsequent administrative and boundary changes. It should also reflect parish creations from an original Ancient Parish and identify how 19th and twentieth century population growth altered the approach to meeting the spirtual needs of parishioners. Links to Wikipedia projects for churches and places of worship in some English counties are a valuable resource (often illustrated and with geo map co-ordinates to locate the sites) In many counties images and other information can also be found and linked.

==== Section Headings  ====
However the Genealogical Society of Utah microfilm or digital images may represent only a small part of record sources held in archives in various locations. The parish registers and other parish records ( Vestry Meetings minutes; local census material; graveyard maps and lists of burial plots) may remain in either parish or Diocesan registry. Bishop's Transcripts may need explanation as they may have changed location over the centuries.

'''Add section headings as needed''' and subheadings; Add any section heading for material you want to add or use existing headings.  [[FamilySearch_Wiki:New_Common_Taxonomy|Ideas for Topic Headings]]

*Civil Registration
The ultimate aim is to create a means for any reader to identify how they can search the records either online in an Online Parish Clerk Transcript, images at an archive site (Lincolnshire: Lincs to the past) or the reference in a county archive for both parish and diocese. It is dangerous to assume that the searcher has access to the Family History Library or any of the Branch FamilySearch local church based facilities or is in a position to undertake research personally. If possible an indication of the arrangement of original surviving records and condition can be offered. [[Downe, Kent]] offers such descriptions.

Parish History

This section should be written using multiple sources.

Add a general overview of the history of this parish. It can be a few sentences or a couple of paragraphs. If it is a few sentences put the expansion box in this section to encourage a more lengthy history.

The aim of the parish history section should be to explain the ecclesiastical and civil parish history of the place and subsequent administrative and boundary changes. It should also reflect parish creations from an original Ancient Parish and identify how 19th and twentieth century population growth altered the approach to meeting the spirtual needs of parishioners. Links to Wikipedia projects for churches and places of worship in some English counties are a valuable resource (often illustrated and with geo map co-ordinates to locate the sites) In many counties images and other information can also be found and linked.

The aim should be to cater for an international beginner readership as well as the experienced researcher. It is also useful to locate other faiths within a Church of England parish boundary. The Church records section on the page can then develop description of the archive holding the deposited records or indicate if the records are still held in the parish by the incumbent

Resources section

A link to Family History Library catalogue may fit well in this section.

    • Statistical Census Data
  • History
    • Nineteenth Century
    • Twentieth century
  • Probate Records
  • Maps & Gazetteers

  • Template:British Census - {{British Census|241191}}
