Online Parish Clerk (Genealogy) Scheme

What is an Online Parish Clerk (Genealogy)? 

The term OPC (Genealogy) refers to an unpaid volunteer, who should not be confused with a Parish Council appointed Parish Clerk.  Any information provided on these pages should be used only as a guide, rather than being assumed to be 100% accurate.  Please visit the Cornwall On-line Parish Clerk website for more details of the OPC (Genealogy) scheme and other parishes.

Many of the parish register records which I have transcribed for St Minver are on the Cornwall OPC database which is fully searchable.  Other records for St Minver are also available.  http://www.cornwall-opc-database.org/  These records are also entered in my own database which provides family tree groupings.

There are also transcribed documents available from links on the page for St Minver on the Cornwall OPC site. http://www.cornwall-opc.org/Par_new/l_m/minver_st.php   These documents are:-
