As the first promoter of family history studies as distinct from genealogy more than 60 years ago, the author of The Atlas and Index of Parish Registers (first published by Everton's, subsequently by Phillimore's and the one who saved (and arranged indexing) the Pallot Index (published by Ancestry), now held at The IHGS that I founded ( www.ihgs.ac.uk ), saved the Lang Collection of Gretna Green marriage registers and the unpublished Philimore indexes, and a good deal more, I am certain that users of my site ( www.britishancestry.org ) may find some worthwhile help available.
