Subject: [ZA-EC] Pre 1820 settler information TAIT to TURVEY
Date: Wed, 3 Nov 2010 17:08:44 -0000

This is pre 1820 information mainly taken from actual images of parish
registers held at the London Metropolitan Archives, non conformist registers
at the National Archives at Kew (RG4), online parish registers at or from original images at I have also included some
information from original images of Scottish old parish registers and
Wiltshire parish records which I have personally researched. With references
to the IGI I have been careful to state whether the information is
"extracted" (taken from parish registers) or "submitted" (submitted by an
LDS member, which may or may not be from original sources and should be
thoroughly checked). Where reference is made to the London Gazette, the full
version can be downloaded from
