Kia ora

I have been looking through these to check up on some things.  I wanted to find the ones that were in High Ercall - see below - but I cannot find which book they are in, any ideas.

According to Shropshire Archives, the parish registers for High Ercall are available on FindMyPast.

Christenings/Baptisms 1576-1900
Marriages 1585-1900
Banns 1754-1837
Burials 1585-1900

May also be available on FamilySearch.

Incidentally, William Colley (1891) and Gulielmus are one and the same person ;D
The Latin form of William is Gulielmus.

Thanks for that I can't go on Find my past.  But they are all freely available on line here for anyone.
https://archive.org/search.php?query=shropshire%20parish%20records

But I cannot find the High Ercall ones I thought they perhaps they came under another parish which I might not know of.

Many thanks for the William name too.

What you are looking at are the transcripts written by the Shropshire Parish Records Society.
These are available here: http://www.melocki.org.uk/MelockiSalop.html

But High Ercall isn't among them.

So, you have 3 sources:
1. Shropshire Archives; and pay for a researcher
2. FindMyPast; Not sure I understand why you can't go there?
3. FamilySearch.org; you have to register, but it's free to use the Search facility.

Okay thanks.

I don't at this point want to pay but will in the future when I have gathered as much as information as I can.

They are much easier to search on the Shropshire Parish records you put in a name and it tells you what pages that surname is in, very quick.  I think Melocki which I am aware of and have looked at before is not easy to search. 

To find any real detail on find my past you have to subscribe - I already have a subscription to another site for a year.

Yes I do use family search.

Unfortunately the records in the link you gave do not include High Ercall/Ercall Magna records. These records were from  booklets produced by Shropshire FHS many years ago and have subsequently been used by the Melocki site. Thus, neither have the records for that parish.

Family search does have the records. See:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=20670&query=%2Bplace%3A%22England%2C%20Shropshire%2C%20Ercall-Magna%22

Also, as Kevin has said, FindMyPast does have the records.  I think you can purchase a monthly sub; making sure you cancel before the month is up.

Hi Gadget

I have had a look at the Family search information and I can't understand how it works.  I don't seem to be able to get a printout other than the name of the document I am wanting to see.... e.g.
Bishop's transcripts for Ercall-Magna, 1631-1861
Author:   Church of England. Parish Church of Ercall-Magna (Shropshire)

If I add this to the print list I get the heading and it suggests they are only available on Microfiche or film, does that mean I would then need to order them.  Somewhere it said to look at world cat.

Can you help please.
