Parish Registers in the Devon & Cornwall Record Society's Collection

Full details of the Society's large collection of Parish Register transcripts are given in:
Stride, S. (comp.) A Shelflist of the Society's Collections. Westcountry Studies Library, Castle Street, Exeter EX4 3PQ (June 1986) 30pp.
This publication, which is available from the Westcountry Studies Library, details the Society's holdings under the following headings: The parish register transcriptions generally end in or before 1837; those that are in fact based on Bishops' Transcripts typically cover just a brief early period - only a few go through into the 18th or 19th centuries.

The collection is held in the Westcountry Studies Library, for the use of members only. Membership in the Society may be taken out in the Library. Temporary (three months) membership costs £2.50, and annual membership £5.00.

It would appear that the great majority of the Devon IGI entries come from these transcriptions.
