Event description

Description

Free talk

For hundreds of years the parish was the most important unit of local government. This talk covers the historical administration of the parish, its officials and their records, as well as showing you how to use these records to trace your ancestors and find out more about their local community.

From the historical parish and the ecclesiastical parish, to what became the civil parish, the talk will cover up to the creation of the modern civil parish in 1894.



We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
