How to search the Parish and Trade records includes Search features;

The records have been scanned in order to give high quality images of the original.  These have been made word searchable using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which is the recognition of printed or written text characters by a computer.

As several typefaces, characters and different fonts were used in producing the Parish registers and Trade Directories, OCR will not always recognise letters and words and finding a name may not be as straightforward as using a simple Search as used in other databases where all the names are indexed and only what you enter is found as an exact match.
