Join our transcription team!
If anyone would like to join our transcribing team by transcribing a parish of your choice that has not already been done, please contact Jenni by clicking here. There are two ways of transcribing - one at the Heritage Centre using original documents, or at home using folios sent by email. The choice is yours!

The task is not too taxing, does not need great computing skills and can be done in your own time - there is no rush to complete the job. We will give you full instructions and indeed answer any queries or try to solve any problems that you might have. If you are already a transcriber and would also like, perhaps, to do another parish, please contact Jenni by clicking here.
