South Newington MI CD

The latest release in the Oxfordshire FHS series of illustrated memorial CDs is for South Newington. It costs a mere £6, including postage.

It contains photographs & transcriptions, sometimes with details from the burial registers for comparison, of around 400 gravestones in the churchyard together with other inscriptions, such as wall plaques and stones within the church. Each stone or plaque, etc, is described as well as photographed and transcribed, and there’s a detailed map of the churchyard, the church and the parish cemetery, with every plot linked to the relevant memorial.

There’s a full name index, also linked to the relevant memorial, with full name, age and year of death.

The CD is available through the OFHS shopping cart, or by cheque – details at http://www.ofhs.org.uk/CDsales.html , along with many similar CDs for other parishes.

We first produced this parish by parish list of the dates covered by our published transcripts in 2011. Since then our transcribers have been busy and we have published an updated list. This time we have published it in two forms, one A-Z by parish as before and the other sorted by CD to make it easy to see the date coverage on any particular CD.

These PDF downloads come as 12 A5 pages which can be printed as a booklet (if your computer & printer cooperate!)

A-Z by parish: http://www.ofhs.org.uk/OxfordshireParishRecordsDateFinderA-Z.pdf

By CD: http://www.ofhs.org.uk/OxfordshireParishRecordsDateFinder-byCD.pdf

Members: note that the latter CD-ordered version will form part of the Members’ Handbook which will accompany your April journal.
