What's new in our area of coverage.

On this page we'll be letting you know of any recent changes in the area that we cover and the material that we're working on.  We will also be detailing recently published new titles and letting you know of Family History events which we plan to attend.



Many of the archives we visit have been hit by reduced funding which has resulted in reduced opening hours and/or reduced document production times.  Please ensure before setting out to visit an archive that it won't be closed when you arrive and, if you know reference numbers, order documents in advance of your visit. 

In Bedford our transcription of the Howard Chapel, Bedford register is nearing completion. 

We last visited Reading on November 23rd when we continued our transcription of the various Wantage Union records, including Workhouse Births and Deaths.

e are transcribing the entries in the Peterborough Wesleyan Methodist Circuit baptism registers and the records of Creaton Congregational Church. 

At Oxford we're working on a second volume of our  'People of Henley on Thames' publication.  Car parking space at The Oxfordshire History Centre is at a premium and with very little 'on street' parking available nearby our advice, if you're planning a visit, would be to arrive early.
