Stirnet. Burke's Peerage and Gentry - Definitive historical and genealogical guide to major families. Directory of Royal Genealogical Data. At this site I have a database containing the genealogy of the British Royal family and those linked to it via blood or marriage relationships. It contains, in fact, the genealogy of almost every ruling house in the western world because of the intermarriage that took place between them at some time or another. There are in excess of 30,000 individuals from the earliest times to the present in the database. The date spread of the records is available for those interested, as well as statistics on the ten most popular monarchs , and the most prolific readers top 10. The data may be browsed in several different ways. You can select indexes of the data that are ordered alphabetically, by dates, by ruling house or title or by some search string you specify. A new (July 99) feature is a list of chronological implausibilities identified by an automatic scan of the data.

Parish Registers

This is a vast online research site, holding complete BMD and census records, along with Parish Registers, military records, directories, non-conformist records, and much more. Parish records are available in two formats - transcripts/database records and searchable printed books. The database records consist of easily searched transcripts of the original records which allow you to search on various fields and may also have linked images of the original registers. The searchable books consist of indexed books that were transcribed and published many years ago, many over 110 years old. These transcript books have then been OCR'd (Optical Character Recognition) to turn the pages into searchable text. The Parish Register Transcription Society. CORNWALL OPC.
