  • The Vital Records Index, British Isles gives birth/baptism and marriage records. It is not comprehensive

  • The Vital Records Index for the British Isles covers mainly birth/baptism and marriage records of England, Wales, Scotland and
    Ireland between 1530 and 1988.  Its sources are mainly parish registers
  • Not all counties are represented and some are more completely represented than others
