This CD contains both volumes of William Phillimore's transcripts of marriages from various registers covering Berkshire on one CD, in the form of searchable entries. (Phillimore's did not have access to the registers in all parishes when making the transcripts. For parishes included see below). The transcriptions for each parish contain the whole of the registers for each parish from the first available preserved register (usually in the 1500s and as early as 1538) up to either 1812 or in many cases, 1837. Note: the later ones contain a lot more information than the earlier ones.
Just 150 copies of each volume were printed. These are very rare and sought-after books of incredible value to the family historian.
High quality scanned images of the whole of the original books. A wealth of information and a snapshot in time. This CD can be viewed by any computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 4 or later recommended). The data on this CD is completely self-contained, and requires no installation.
