Online parish clerk

More websites for online parish clerks are cropping up. These are transcriptions of parish records for, usually, a small community, or group of communities, done by a local person. Being local chances are they know the names and can avoid some transcription errors made by those without that advantage.

The site for the Online Parish Clerk for Helston, St Cleer & St Martin in Meneage, Cornwall, UK, is a good recent example. Here are direct links to the transcripts of the Parish records and Bishops’ Transcripts for Helston, St. Cleer and St. Martin in Meneage.
