Place Names and Repertoire Locations

We often find that in the records of a marriage, there will be a place name given for the origin of one of the participants. Naturally, that's the first place to look for the marriage of the parents.

However, usually the place name is quite cryptic, and gives no indication of what area this place is in, or whether it's a town or a parish, and therefore, it's hard to know what repertoire to use to find this marriage.

So I have made a list of some of the place names you may encounter, with the repertoire where you will find marriages listed. It's imcomplete, of course, but it can be quite helpful if the place you're looking for is here (of course, it's quite useless if it isn't). I've made no attempt to distinguish between towns and parishes, because I generally have no way of knowing which is correct.

Bear in mind that many parish names have been used many times in different places. So the ones I list may not be the only possible locations for the parish you're looking for. Where I know that same parish name appears in more than one repertoire, I list the repertoire names separated by a semi-colon.
