Searching English Parish Registers

from my email:-

The Freereg database was rebuilt on November 21, 2006. An additional 67,000 records were added this past month, for a total of 1,180,888 entries. (A 5% increase)
FreeREG - Search English Parish Register Transcripts and Indexes

Fixes were applied to resolve the following problems.

1. Displaying a number instead of the parish in marriages.
2. Not displaying split years.
3. Not always displaying dates containing an *.

You should also be aware that FreeREG should now be available worldwide and that 4 additional servers were installed to support all three Free projects

U.K. FreeREG is a companion project to FreeBMD (a database of the GRO birth, marriage and death indexes from 1837) and FreeCEN (a database of census information).

Contributing to the project
we are in URGENT need of volunteers willing to undertake the transcription of registers or make available their own transcriptions
