The intention (and I believe close to reality) is that every book that has ever been
published containing a Devon parish register transcript is listed under Church Records on
the appropriate GENUKI/Devon parish page, along with details of any other information
about that parish's registers, their availability, etc. (So when searching for such
material this should be your first port of call.)
When I learn that such a book has been scanned and made available online (in the Internet
Archive, or Google Books, or wherever) I add an appropriate link to its details in the
However I cannot keep monitoring all such sources, so I largely depend on people who find
an online book whose address is not given in GENUKI/Devon alerting me to the fact, so that
I can remedy the deficiency.
So please, if you find anything on Internet Archive (or anywhere else) which should be and
isn't listed or whose URL is not given in GENUKI/Devon, PLEASE let me know.
PS (To Diana) I assume the Bampton source you are alluding to is: Granville, Roger &
Mugford, W.E. (eds.). Abstracts of the Existing Transcripts of the Lost Parish-Registers
of Devon. A link to this book is in my Bampton page already.

Many, many thanks for giving the site of Internet Archive. I have found hitherto unknown
(hopefully) family members in Bampton in 1609 having only been able to get back to
1700's before. Later Parish Records for Bampton are also missing - in the 1800's
- but they are completely lost unfortunately.
The Internet Archive site looks absolutely fascinating and I hope to be sourcing it
again. I had no idea it existed!
Thank you again for sharing your expertise with us.
