Vellum bound Parish registers of Baptisms and Burials

New lease of life (and death!) given to Parish registers of Baptisms and Burials, through the gift of a generous benefactor. This will enable continued access to valuable source material by historians and family researchers.  The original pages of rag paper, dating back two hundred years, are in good condition but the sewing had failed as had the vellum spines.  The books have been sympathetically resewn and restored with new vellum spines, but retaining as much of the original as possible.
