I think I understand your predicament.
When you get to the page which lists all the available parishes (if that
is what you meant by 'indexes re each parish') you need to pick the
parish/town you want to look at and then click on it.
A side window opens up which lets you pick from what is available for
that town or parish.
Click on one of the choices (sometimes there is only one).
A third side window opens with the years available. Click on the year or
year bracket you want.
A drop down message opens up to tell you how many images are available
(for example "View 122 images").
Click on that message and presto, you are there looking at the actual
Now, if I am totally wrong in my assumption, and instead you are in fact
looking to find an automated index of ALL parish registers. Sorry, at
this time there isn't one. These records are NOT indexed as a group,
just yet. You'll have to know which parish you want to look at, and go
though each record, year by year, page per page. But don't forget to
check the last page first to see if the original record you are looking
at has been indexed by the priest. Most have been. (See my previous
post for more details).
