Church Records

Similarly check with transcript publishers to ensure they cover the records and years you require before making a purchase.

Transcripts/indexes in progress

Work on transcripts and indexes start off with good intentions, but circumstances can arise which mean that the task is larger than first envisaged, or other tasks require the trancribers time. So there is no guarantee that publication will always take place or that initially envisaged target dates will be met.

The work being undertaken is not being done as part of GENUKI, so it will not be available for online research as part of this site. This does not of course preclude it being made available in this way elsewhere. The final publication medium will be determined by the trancriber.
