Tracing English and Welsh ancestors

If your English or Welsh ancestors were born in 1837 or later, it is fairly easy to trace your roots to and in the "old country" — thanks to the national civil registration. Of course, identifying your ancestor among many with the same name can be both the challenge and the fun.

Book Since July 1, 1837, it has been required that every birth, death, and marriage be registered with the central government. This means there is only one place you need to look for one of these records. However, there were no penalties for not registering prior to 1875, so compliance between 1837 and 1875 was not 100 percent. Events were registered at a local public records office, which retained a copy, so each record should be available in both the local and the central records office.

The records are indexed by type, and then by Book name. Indexes are produced quarterly. The Family History Library (FHL) has microfilm copies of the civil registration indexes of all births, marriages, and deaths for England and Wales through 1980. However, the library does not have any actual civil registration certificates, but it may have the church baptism, marriage, or burial records for the same time period. The actual certificates must be ordered from England and currently cost about $16 each.

is a detailed article on the subject by Mark Howells.

Major sources you can use for tracing English and Welsh ancestors are:
Ball Civil Registers (births, marriages and deaths)
Ball Census Records
Ball Parish Records

Census and parish records are arranged geographically so you must know where your ancestors resided at specific time periods. The Civil Registration is nationwide, but unless the surname is most unusual, you will probably need to know at least the county to be sure you have the right person. The only major geographical change affecting genealogical research for England and Wales is the one whereby the counties were restructured in 1974. Genealogy records are filed by old county boundaries, so the use of a pre-1974 map is needed. Parishes corresponded closely to the villages of the same name. A rural parish may iBooknclude a village and two or three hamlets. In larger cities there will be several churches so it will be necessary to determine in which parish your family lived.

If your ancestor was still living in England or Wales in 1851 and you know where he or she was living, try the 1851 census. It will reveal the birth place. These records have been filmed and are available at the Family History Library. BookCheck the British IGI (International Genealogical Index) at FamilySearch for all your surnames, as many of England's parish records have been entered into this data base. The British IGI also will reveal in which localities your surname(s) were prevalent

Clues to your family's history are often found in overlooked places. Be sure to search among your family's papers for:

Ball Passports
Ball Scrapbooks
Ball Photo albums
Ball Old letters and envelopes (bearing a post office stamp and date)
Ball Discharge papers or certificates of good conduct in the British army (these papers usually give the immigrant's town of birth)
Ball Newspapers clippings
Ball Obituaries
Ball Family Bibles.

Once you have exhausted the resources of the Family History Library, there may be additionally records in England that you would want to examine, either personally or via a hired Book researcher. The National Archives has many records that are not available elsewhere. The Society of Genealogists in London also has many published family histories and the largest collection of transcribed parish registers. Each county in England has its own record office and they often have additional land, church, taxation, and other records that you will not find elsewhere.
