    If you're trying to trace your family tree in Shropshire I've stumbled across an extensive pile of searchable parish register transcripts at

    http://www.melocki.org.uk/MelockiSalop.html

    If you're using Google Chrome you can search the pages for names using CTRL F - other browsers should have a similar search function.

    Great resource. Thanks. (Not that I have come across any ancestors from Shropshire yet but one never knows)

    It turned up when I was looking for someone who'd inscribed their name and village in an old book I picked up the other day, but Shropshire historically contains a lot of people with my surname so it may come in handy at some point.

    I've copied it into the Genealogy Group section. Hope you don't mind :)

    Brilliant - thanks for the info!

    Although I feel I've come home to Shropshire, I've yet to find the link :)

    No problem - I knew there was a genealogy interest section somewhere but couldn't remember where.
