Sources for Research in English Genealogy

Compiled by Judith P. Reid


This guide has been prepared primarily as an aid to finding information about English genealogy at the Library of Congress, but it will also be useful for those searching in other large libraries. It is not comprehensive and is intended to supplement P. William Filby's American & British Genealogy & Heraldry: A Selected List of Books (Z5311.F55 1983). The Library's British collection is so vast that the number of volumes it has ranks second only to those relating to the United States, but this is not surprising. Since the 1700s, British local history societies have had active publishing programs and produced hundreds of parish registers and other local records, many of which are available in the Library of Congress.
