    Reasonable coverage in the IGI.
    FamilySearch.org - Family History and Genealogy Records

    Reasonable coverage on the BIVRI discs - which I think are now available on Ancestry.

    Have you checked the links on the Staffordshire page in the wiki
    Staffordshire - Family Tree Forum

    Do you have any particular parishes that you are interested in?

      Hi Ken - there are some records here - Transcriptions from Staffordshire - but not many - hopefully someone else will know more than I !

        The Birmingham and West Midlands FHS have a good collection of books and cds that cover Staffs, Worcs & Warks.
        Also for the Wolverhampton area there are a lot of parish records on line for Wolves-Bilston & Willenhall at the Wolverhampton Archives website.

          thanks everyone. the main areas are around lichfield, ie: longdon & gentleshaw where the derry side of my tree came from. they were mainly miners & ag workers & some moved up to yorkhire as new pits opened.ken

              Have a look at the Record Office's online catalogue too:

              http://www.archives.staffordshire.go...qCmd=Index.tcl

              And if you come across any Malletts or Jacksons, let me know

                thanks for that elaine. i have used this site quite a lot . the derry clan was quite large in these areas in the time scale i am interested in and i need more info if i can find it. the IGI site is very good but does not always give ample info and i wondered if getting copies that i can peruse at my leisure may throw up more info on wifes/mothers maiden names.ken

                    Doesn't sound like one of mine - my Jacksons were mostly from Wall and Longdon, pre-1764, when a Jackson married into the Mallet family.

                      Some Staffs PRs have been transcribed by FreeReg:

                      and FHOL has quite a few burials (now also on findmypast):

                          If it's post 1837, then these links:
                          Staffordshire Births Marriages & Deaths
                          West Midlands Births Marriages & Deaths

                          might be useful.

                          Also UKBMD - Births, Marriages, Deaths Indexes & Census transcriptions for the UK, On-Line itself has links sorted by county, so they might have some useful Staffs material.
