Forum: General Family History Queries

Although it is best to use specific forums for various topics, this one is for general topics that don't otherwise have a home.

    I subscribe to one of the main online genealogy data companies - the one that changed its name a few years ago. I use it very often and frequently find mis-transcriptions.

  10. Baptisms

  19. Parishes not in a borough

    I'm sure there is a very simple explanation but I can't quite get my head around it. I thought England was divided into boroughs in the early 1800 s.
