About Us

The Society was formed in 1898 and has published, at the time of writing (2006), 193 volumes of parish register transcriptions, either in hardback or on CD.

These publications contain substantial parts of the registers of over a hundred parishes, printed fairly steadily since 1898. They include editions of more than fifty of the earliest Lancashire registers - in fact all but fone of the registers commencing in the 16th century have now been printed in part. This one, Stretford, is being prepared for publication. Transcripts or indexes of many registers made for the Society and awaiting publication are available in the Society's library of transcripts kindly stored for us in Manchester Central Library's Archives Department.

The rate of publication depends essentially on financial considerations. At present we aim to publish at least two volumes a year, plus as many as possible on CD.

Members will receive copies of everything published during each year of paid up membership, whether in hardback, or on CD and the opportunity to purchase, at a reduced cost, previously published volumes that the Society has in its stocks.
