The Parish Chest and British-Genealogy.com

The Parish Chest is advertised as an online family history superstore and as the the premier online genealogy specialists internationally renowned for quality products and speed of service. Reviewing their site, the breadth of their supplies and offerings is impressive. They have a convenient link to dozens of British Family History Societies. Many of the organizations listed do not appear to have their own Websites so the list is helpful in making contact with these local organizations. They also have a listing of the available Parish Registers for England which can be purchased primarily in fiche format.

The Parish Chest Bookshop is extensive. They also list military matters, reference books, MIs and Memorials, Maps and Atlases, Directories and Census Records. The purpose of The Parish Chest is to provide an online store where family history societies and suppliers of top quality genealogical goods could list their products, and make them available to customers at any time.

The Parish Chest also sponsors British-Genealogy.com, with free resource pages and a message forum. The resources pages are arranged by subject and have everything from old books to maps and wills. Some of the site is under development, but this is a site worth looking into.
