Church Registers Go On-line

The parish registers of baptism, marriage, banns and burials have survived and capture the history of people in the village going back to the middle of the 16th century.  The books themselves are fragile and are kept at the Warwickshire County Records Office.

Recently they have been transferred to microfilm and Anne Hale has spent many hours creating copies for reference.  As part of my Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award I have to complete a community service project and with the sponsorship of David Knight I have scanned the copies onto my computer, formatted images and created web pages so that the registers can be viewed on the village web site.

I am pleased to announce that the first phase of the project is finished and images of the register of baptisms from 1564 to 1840 can now be viewed on-line.  You can reach the registers from the Church section of the village web site at www.oxhill.org.uk.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
