Over 1.7 Million individual records
Latest update 20 July 2016
Online Parish Clerks (OPCs) research available historical data
related to a given parish, transcribe records and make them FREELY available.
All transcriptions on this site are intended for use in
personal & private research only. The transcripts are
subject to copyright and may NOT be used
for any commercial purpose.
OPCs are volunteers and should not be confused with Parish Clerks
appointed by local churches or Parish Councils.
Most OPCs work on their own and are certainly not infallible!
Their transcripts have not been validated and so the information provided should be taken as a guide only. As with
all data on the internet you should check the primary source (which in most cases will
available at the
Dorset History Centre).
