Parish Register History

Transcriptions for St Minver

Parish Registers

At present (Dec 2010) I have transcribed the Parish Registers for St Minver from 1558 to 1850 and entered this into my own database.  From 1800 onwards also has good census coverage.  The database provides family trees.

I have also transcribed (again) for the OPC searchable database (CPROP) which currently has coverage for the following years.


1690 to 1812 1835 to 1885      


1696 to 1787 1813 to 1885      


1678 to 1885
