Surviving Parish records in the form of churchwarden's and overseers' accounts cover a good deal of the 17th and 18th centuries, but there is a surprising lack of such documents for the 19th century. On the other hand the 19th and early 20th centuries are well covered by the ten-yearly census returns, various trade directories, tithe and Ordnance maps and last but not least the Parish Magazine which made its first appearance in February 1887. We have digitised every single available Parish Magazine since the very first one published in February 1887. Look at the table below before you look in the Archive at the bottom of the page, as it will show you the magazines that are still missing. I would like to thank the following people for helping me create this Archive; Alison & Paul Bennett, John England, Lynn Fancy, Martin Lys, John Pitfield & the Dorset History Centre.
Total Magazines published (As of April 2017) 1,288 Total Magazines currently missing 34 Total Magazines digitised 1,254 % Total Magazines that are digitised 97%

The Parish magazine was published just three times a year in 1923 / 1925 The Parish magazine was published just twice in 1924. The Parish magazine was published just once between1926 and 1936 July 1986 is a faulty pdf document! The Parish Magazine was discontinued in 1936, due to mounting losses. The Magazine was restarted in 1947, having been discontinued during the War, due to paper shortages. Unfortunately all the magazines from 1947 are currently missing. The Magazine was suspended from January 1961 until June 1961, so we only have magazines from June onwards. Any month marked with an ‘X’ means it is missing. If you have this copy then we would love to have a scan of it to add here to share. Contact
