This valuable resource by Charles Wareing Bardsley could prove to be very helpful in researching more than one branch of your family history. Check for multiple surnames and if your family came from the United Kingdom, you're sure to find at least one match.
Be sure to read the Introduction, which starts with a very useful list of Abbreviations. These are essential in understanding what information is being given in each match you find. I also included the list of abbreviations in the image below for quick reference. This will help you understand and utilize all the valuable clues. Note: It is important to consider spelling variations as these records are very old.
