Our Transcriptions
The register has been transcribed as seen, except that:

  • Surnames are capitalised to aid searching
  • Dates have been standardised to a simple form
  • Abbreviated names have always been expanded e.g.W[illia]m, Tho[ma]s

Spelling mistakes and variants of names e.g. LydaiHavart have been retained.

Spreadsheets

  • Information has been extracted and transferred to columns
  • In recording the registration of a child with unmarried parents the surnames of both parents, if known, are given in the child’s surname column
  • An extra Notes column has been added to the spreadsheet for any extra information provided by the minister, or to give an explanation for the user
  • The first column of the spreadsheet gives the page number of the register
  • The final spreadsheet column (shaded pink) gives the identification number of the scanned image from which our transcribers worked.
