Reorganisation of Parishroots

As some of you may have noticed, Parishroots is having a make-over for the New Year. All the articles are being reorganised by book rather than county. This will make it obvious what type of articles are available and should give a shorter categories list. Each article is also tagged with the parish name. If you click the tag it will take you to all the articles for that parish. To make it easier to find the parish you are interested in you will be able to use the menus on the left of the page. Choose the country, then county for the parish you are interested in. Each County Page will have a list of parishes which link to the tag page for that parish and thus will list all articles for that parish.
