Parish Locator

PARLOC home: "If you are researching in UK you may find our Freeware Parish Locator Program useful. The current version is 2.7#11 - May 2007.
The database which was originally created by Gerald Lawson now contains nearly 15000 parishes and includes many corrections."

his UK Parish Locator program is freeware and will run on Windows 95/98, ME, NT, Windows 2000 & Windows XP. Users tell me that it also works fine with Vista.
The Database is available to users of other operating systems as a CSV file

The Windows program enables you to locate any one of nearly 15,000 UK parishes. It will produce a list of parishes in any County or a list of parishes within a given radius of any other parish and also allows Import and Export via "csv" files. It is possible to plot the location of parishes to either the screen or the printer. This version also includes a number of corrections to errors found by users.

The parishes listed were those in existence at some during the period from the mid 1500s to about 1837 when civil registration started but see section 2.2 of the Manual for full details
