Progress Overview

The Parish Records Project has been completed but in order to protect the privacy of living people, not all of the Parish Records that we've transcribed are available to view on the Web site. Our policy is not to show records within the following cut off years - Baptisms 90 years and Marriages 70 years. Transcripts of all Burials are included in the database. To access the list of transcribed records please click here
If you have an interest in a particular parish, the easiest way to find what records are available for that parish is to type the parish name in the search box.


You will need to Register if you wish to search the Parish Records or post a message in the forum. Registration is free and you should be able to complete the process quickly. Forest of Dean Family History has a Privacy Statement and we will not under any circumstances sell or give away any e-mail addresses.

If you find an entry that you consider differs from the original parish record or if you believe it has been transcribed incorrectly, please provide us with the details by using the Parish Records Correction Request form. We will check out your request and amend that record if it is found to have been incorrectly transcribed and will update the details on the Website.
