The above advice is good, though not as good in the case of Devon as
one might hope and expect, I'm afraid. This is because the LDS was
not able to get permission to microfilm and transcribe many (any?) of
the Devon parish registers, and what they do have for Devon are
almost entirely copies of published transcriptions, of varying
quality, from the library of the Devon and Cornwall Record Society.
And such transcriptions cover relatively few parishes. (This is all
explained under "Church Records" on the GENUKI/Devon page. Individual
parish pages in GENUKI/Devon provide, or lead you to, information
about what registers and transcriptions are available where.)
