Cornwall Online Parish Clerks
Cornish Online-Parish-Clerks (OPCs) are volunteers who collect, collate and transcribe records for a chosen specific parish in Cornwall. The data originates from as many sources as can be accessed, including census, parish registers, cemetery records and parish histories. The emphasis is on genealogy, but is not limited to that alone. (This extract is taken from the Cornwall OPC statement of objectives)
I am slowly transcribing the parish records and submitting them to the OPC searchable database. I also enter the data into my St Minver Folk database where they become part of an extending tree for each family, many families become linked together in marriage and a community grows within my database! Please email me for details of your St Minver family.
When I can, I also spend time in St Minver recording gravestone details, whilst my husband photographs them. On this particular occasion, I was in St Michael's Churchyard, at Porthilly, with a December gale howling down the Camel, fingers freezing cold and pages flying! Please ask, I may have a photograph of your ancestor's gravestone.
Some Wills and Administrations from adjacent parishes are available here. They are mainly associated with names from St Minver.
It soon becomes apparent when tracing your family history that they didn't stay in the same place. Often they moved between adjacent parishes, moving where the agricultural work was. Below I have included a list of adjacent parishes on the North Camel Coast, together with OPC contacts and names of people from those parishes who appear in my St Minver Database.
