Baptisms and Burials The Society has an ongoing programme of transcribing baptisms and burials from parish registers for Wiltshire before civil registration. Provided that they were available in fiche or CDs, transcripts have not been reprinted in book form after a period of five years from the date of first publication. However, due to demand, most of them are now being reprinted. The list of transcripts is in our leaflet Parish Register Transcripts and Other Publications. Click on your browser's back button to return to this page. At the bottom of this page is a summary of the available Baptisms CDs, showing which parishes are included on which CD.
Our programme to publish transcripts too large for our in-house printing facility is almost complete. These transcripts have been published through the on-line publisher, Lulu.com. Click here to visit the Lulu website to see details of all the transcripts and order copies. These transcripts are only available through Lulu. We do not hold stocks of them. As Lulu publishes in several countries, postage tends to be cheaper than if posted from the UK. Additionally, you receive your copy direct from the printers, usually within a week of ordering.
Marriages The Society has not transcribed marriage entries in parish registers. However, all parish marriages to 1837 have been transcribed and the data is owned by Nimrod Research. The Society has, in a joint venture with Nimrod Research, published these transcripts on a set of three CDs. To see the breakdown of parishes between the three CDs click here. You can buy them, and our other publications, from our stall at various family history events we attend. Go to our Events Calendar page to see the shows we plan to attend. The CDs are available by post or on-line; see below. Payment through Genfair is by debit or credit card. If you prefer to use PayPal you can order, the marriage CDs only, through Nimrod Research, with ordering details on their Marriage Index page.
Ordering by post Information on ordering by post is included in the Parish Register Transcripts and Other Publications leaflet (link above).
Ordering online You can also order our publications online through Genfair. This link should take you straight to our section within the site. If it fails this link will take you to the Genfair home page, from which you can navigate to our section.
Thanks to one of our members, we can now offer a map of Wiltshire showing its parishes. Follow this link to view the map, which can be purchased for just £1.
