The Burslem Parish Registers, Volume 1 is a database from the Everton Library Collection. The Burslem Parish Register contains baptism, marriage, and burial records for the years 1761-1809. Burslem is in North Staffordshire. It is on the Trent and Mersey Canal. It is an ancient Chapelry and occurs in Domesday as Barcardeslim and in various records and charters as Borewardeslyme, Burewardesley-lime, Burwardeslime, Burwareslem, and Burdeslem.

The Great Marlow Parish Registers database contains baptismal, marriage, and burial records from 1592 to 1611. Unfortunately, the registers were fairly damaged by moisture and contained many torn pages. The transcription contains the best recreation of the records as possible, with supplied words enclosed in square brackets. In some places toward the end, every letter had to be carefully analyzed under a strong lens.
