title Dearly Departed: Burial Records

description Unless you have the discerning mind of an Agatha Christie or the detective skills of a Sherlock Holmes, it is frequently difficult to find biographical material to flesh out the various names on your ancestral charts. Parish burial records may sound like a far-fetched source for biographical details about your forbears, but do not decide too quickly to ignore them, especially when researching the earlier periods in Island history. Before you begin your quest for this data, you need to discover certain facts. First, establish when and where your ancestor lived. Then, try to determine what records were kept during his (or her) lifetime in the general area where he (or she) lived. Next, find out where these records may be found today — if still extant — and whether or not any finding aids are available for them.
