Searchable Databases at ParishRegister.com:
Uploaded and ready to search: Christchurch Spitalfields (1729-1763) 9,700-odd entries expertly transcribed by Jim Sheppard at his usual phenomenal rate.
The Merchant Taylors’ Company 1520-1929 (36,000-entry searchable database and CD). This is a transcription of the original index consisting of all 4 volumes in alphabetical order:
The index gives the name, date of freedom, method of admission (apprenticeship, patrimony or redemption), name of master if by apprenticeship, date of election to livery, and ‘Remarks’.
The CD is due to be produced within the next couple of weeks, and all I need to do now is design the CD cover. It’s taken a while to reach this point, but now we have the web page on the site, and the searchable database will also be up and running by mid July.
Now in transcription are:
- Christchurch Spitalfields 1763-1795 (almost complete)
- St George in the East 1848-1861 (two thirds complete)
- St George in the East 1861-1877 (almost complete)
- St Dunstan Stepney 1837-1848 (two thirds complete)
