DustyDocs -- Links to Free British Isles Parish Records

There is always another interesting website to explore online. Here is one of those. DustyDocs is a portal website from Australia with links to the United Kingdom's parish register records. Here is the description from the website:
Dustydocs is a 'web-linking site' of English Baptisms, Marriages and Burials records for the years 1538 to 1900. Our information is sourced from freely available church BMB records and validated user contributions. 
Searches can be conducted using family names and/or locations. Dustydocs categorises England into counties and towns to facilitate searches within specific locations. 
We encourage you to contribute to our growing source of information by adding a certificate, correcting existing dates, or adding new links. New countries will be added to Dustydocs as our database expands.
Here is the page with links to English websites

You may find that this website opens up new possibilities for your British research.


  1. James,
    I have browsed through DustyDocs from time to time. I've done a great deal of research in the British Isles. But I found a lot of the information on the website incomplete and often confusing. To me there is not better place to begin research in Britain than GENUKI

    From there you can go anywhere in the region and find out how to obtain records or advice or even just names of people that will be able to help you.

    AS well, do not forget the local or regional family history societies in the areas you are researching. They all always have many people who are happy to help.
