Want to put parsnips in roast in place of carrots with some potatoes....I've never cooked them before-any suggestions? Do I need to peel them

Yes, peel them. Just like carrots!

You definitely need to peel them. But be mindful, parsnips will cook faster that potatoes, so get the cooking timing right, otherwise if overcook it'll become mashy.

I often include parsnips with roast root vegetables - delicious, and a sort of old fashioned, now under used vegetable, I think. Agree about peeling first.

Yes, you want to peel them. Here's a little article about parsnips: http://food52.com/blog/4735-down-dirty-parsnips that may help.
