Podcast: The Parish: administration and records

Of particular interest to family geneaologists comes a 48 minute podcast from Britain's National Archives, which gives a comprehensive explanation of the Parish system.

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 you can use these records to trace your ancestors and find out more about their local community.
