SEATON / SETON of Scotland & England

Postby Pete Seaton » Wed Sep 26, 2007 7:16 am

i'm in Somerset if that helps.

ive managed to trace my tree back to 1540, how do i get back further, as i cannot find anything beyond this date that relates to my tree on the IGI.
anyone who knows the answer can peruse my tree through the link (in my profile) http://z7.invisionfree.com/seatongenealogy

thanks

Well if you have got back to 1540 via IGI are you sure they are all correct as not all records on IGI are.
Also if you know what counties are represented have you tried looking on they sites to see if they have records for churches in that area and BMD registers in the local records office to see if they go back to the dates you are looking for.
Just a few suggestions to help you on the way.

I didnt say i did it all from the IGI, some relations that i discovered had already done some of the parish registers.

but, where do you go when the parish registers and the IGI cannot help anymore ?

To progress past the start of Parish Registers one needs to access Manorial Records, Wills, Court Rolls, etc.
