Baslow is an unusual parish in some respects. A sizeable proportion of Baslow couples (perhaps even the majority) were married in Bakewell (the 'mother' church), so there are fewer marriage records than might be expected.
In addition, whilst the extant registers span four centuries, portions in the 17th century are missing, or damaged; however the Neals now have years of experience to draw on in deciphering these 'difficult to read' registers, and every attempt has been made to read, and record whatever records are available, using Bishops Transcripts when possible to supplement the result.
Knowing from my own research what a difficult register Baslow can be to work with, this aid to research has my highest commendation. The overall result is without any measure of doubt a major contribution to anyone's research in The Peak District of Derbyshire, and I can thoroughly recommend it.
We provide the information in a variety of formats (including PDF) to ensure CDs should be readable on virtually any operating system. There are three database formats, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Works and Comma-Separated Variable (CSV - suitable for importing into a spreadsheet such as Excel)
Word Processor (DOC) and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) versions are also included, listing records in both chronological and in alphabetical order, although of course these cannot provide the full functionality of a database or spreadsheet for sorting and searching.
Note: Access 97 and above users may wish to be aware there is a fundamental problem in trying to open databases from any read-only media (eg CD), so you will need to copy the database to your hard disk before you can view it.
The CDs also have photograph collections in JPG format, which can be viewed with your favourite image viewer. IrfanView is a good Freeware one, but you can also use Internet Explorer if necessary. Microsoft Paint, one of the Windows 9x Accessories will also suffice.
