More scanning of parish registers funded by Oxfordshire FHS
A couple of years ago, Oxfordshire Family History Society funded the scanning of about 4,000 parish registers of Oxfordshire. They had never been filmed, so the scans are a valuable back up, and can be viewed at Oxfordshire History Centre. As reported in our journal, in due course, subject to date constraints, they will be available worldwide on Ancestry.co.uk.
Since then, more registers have been deposited, and so a further 78 Oxfordshire parish registers, including several for Kidlington, Oxford St Ebbe, Launton, Minster Lovell & Thame, were taken off site recently for scanning, again funded by Oxfordshire FHS.
They were all checked into crates by Mark Priddey, the Archives Manager, and carefully packaged by Linda, one of the archivists.
In due course, the scans of these registers will also be available at the History Centre.
