The Parish Chest contained a wealth of documents concerning everyday life in the parish. Many of these documents are useful to family historians and will help put your ancestors in the context of the period in which they lived. Most of these documents have never been indexed. This lecture will give those attending a brief overview of the types of documents that exist and the information that exists within them.
