Isle of Man

The Isle of Man, a small independent kingdom containing only 17 parishes, is situated in the Irish Sea. It is part of the British Isles, although not part of the United Kingdom, and it has always done its own record-keeping.

In general, these records are housed in either the Manx National Heritage Library or the General Registry in Douglas.
