What's new in our area of coverage.

EUREKASHIRE NEWS - LAST UPDATED 15th September 2017.


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 June 22nd when we continued our transcription of the various Wantage Union records, including Workhouse Births and Deaths. 

In Aylesbury our transcription of the minute book of Zion Baptist Church, High Wycombe, extracting baptism and membership details is complete and is now available.  We continue to work on the Burnham Hundred Tax Return of 1694.

In Chelmsford we are transcribing a number of pre-1841 census returns for the Colchester area.

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. 

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 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 both the Chertsey Union and the Guildford Union.

We last visited Chippenham, on August 8th, 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.
