A Master Index to the Quarto Series of the Huguenot Society of Great Britain & Ireland.
The Huguenots, the Protestants of France, have a long history of suffering, persecution and exile. Between about 1550 and 1750 more than 200,000 of them fled France to seek religious freedom in other countries. At least 50,000 settled in England and Ireland.
Since its formation in 1885 the Huguenot Society of Great Britain and Ireland has published 61 volumes of primary records, including all surviving Huguenot church registers for England and Ireland, naturalization records up to 1800, charity records and some wills. This Master Index is a compilation of all the indexes of all these volumes, and as such will be a useful tool to Huguenot researchers world-wide.
It can be used in conjunction with the Quarto series volumes (many of which are now on CD-ROM) or as a stand-alone aid to anyone wanting to know about family names in the Huguenot records.
This CD consists of PDF files which can be viewed by any computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader (free). The data on this CD is completely self-contained and requires no installation.
