Many people are familiar with the term 'Parish registers’. Family historians in particular are conversant with their content and the information they provide. However, relatively few are aware of the social and economic issues which caused them and influenced their development.

Ted Udall takes a light-hearted look at the history of these records and charts the occasionally bizarre relationships between church, state and a populace determined to use the regulations each to his (or her) own advantage.
