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 January 18th when we continued our transcription of the various Faringdon Union records, including Workhouse Births and Deaths. 

In Aylesbury we are transcribing the records of Winslow Congregational Church.

In Chelmsford we are transcribing a number of pre-1841 census returns for various parts of Essex and also the Workhouse records of the Braintree and Rochford Poor Law Unions..

Our transcription work on the Tewkesbury Abbey registers, held at Gloucester, continues.  We have completed the baptismal entries 1812-1913 and are now transcribing the post 1812 burial entries.
We are also transcribing various records relating to Tetbury including an eighteenth century Religious Census of the town.  The archive at Gloucester is being refurbished and there is currently restricted access.  Please visit the archive web site for latest details regarding visits. 

In Winchester we are transcribing the Winchester Union Workhouse Birth and Death Registers.

In Northampton w
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. 

Our last visit to Warwick was on May 26th when we progressed our transcription of the Warwick charity records and the records of Alcester Presbyterian and Baptist churches. 

At Woking we're transcribing the Workhouse Birth and Death registers of the Chertsey Union..

We last visited Chippenham, on April 28th, when we continued our transcription of the Swindon Wesleyan Methodist Circuit baptism registers and the records of Tisbury Congregational Church.  

Our transcription work at Worcester is 'on hold' until further notice.  When we next visit we'll be continuing our work on the records of Stourbridge Presbyterian Church and the Worcester Angel Street Congregational Church.
