We appreciate that not everyone who visits Parish and searches the database for their ancestors will find what they are looking for; maybe your ancestors were actually from a nearby parish, or maybe they were never baptised? There are a plethora of reasons which could lead to a disappointing result.

But we don't want you to be disappointed!

We have therefore set up a free message board for our visitors to use.

You can use this board to leave messages for other visitors searching for their 'docklands ancestors', and to view messages left by other people searching for similar results as you. Make sure you visit regularly to check for any new information which may help in your quest to find your heritage.

All you have to do to visit it is to click the Docklands Ancestors 'Seal of Quality' link below. All we ask is that you first read our terms and conditions of use (-designed purely as a precaution to protect our valued visitors and ourselves), and that you don't publish any copyrighted material or search results from on the message board.

The message board will open in a new window which you can maximize or resize to suit.
To return to this page simply close the new window.
