What's in the Register

Find the Church you want and you will see the actual dates pertaining to that register. All the GFHS transcriptions for Parish Registers contain the following information. for example :-

Whitchurch St. Mary 

Baptismal Index based on Fatherís Surname

Baptismal Index based on Fatherís Forename

Baptismal Index based on Motherís Surname

Burial Index based on Individualís Surname

Marriages Indexed by Bridegroom

Marriages Indexed by Bride

The first Baptismal Index contains all baptisms from (dates) and assumes that the child has been given the fatherís surname - the present-day practice.

The second Baptismal Index contains baptisms up to 1812 only, and is based on the fatherís Christian Name - useful for identifying those baptisms where a patronymic has been used.

The third Baptismal Index contains only those children whose motherís surname differs from the fatherís, or where only the motherís surname appears.

Burials are covered from (1718 - 1838 ): Marriages from ( 1717 - 1838).

These indexes are intended only as a finding-aid, and do not contain all the detail of the original registers, copies of which can be consulted in the Glamorgan Record Offices. To aid indexing, old-style dates (pre-1752) have been converted to modern usage; where a father has more than two names in the early registers, only the first is treated as a "forename"; all the "ap" pre-fIxes have been removed. In the burial index, all widows using their maiden name are listed under their husbandís surname, with their maiden name following their forename. Modern place-names have been used where positively identified.

The Glamorgan Family History Society would like to thank all the officials who sanctioned this project for their enthusiastic support. All transcription, computer-entry and checking were carried out by members of this Society.
