Recording important parish documents; the National Churchwardens’ Accounts Database.
Can you help with this project?
Valerie Hitchman is looking for volunteers to help with the completion of the National Churchwardens’ Accounts Database.
Although still a work in progress, the database, as it stands, is freely available to all at https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/cross_fac/myparish/projects/cwa/ or you can just search in Google for Churchwardens’ Accounts database.
Approximately 75% of the data collection has been completed and it is already performing an important service to all manner of historians in revealing the survival and locations of this important body of records.
As with everything, the Pandemic has caused a major delay and a project that should be completed by the end of next year, will probably take a further 18 months to complete without help.
