Family History Transcribers.

In Ireland, but born Bucks.
Whilst on a visit to England and Aylesbury Library to do a bit of family research, I encountered a couple who were transcribing parish records for the area most of my paternal rellies lived and worked.
As I've said in another thread, this couple belonged to the Bucks FHS. The lady was viewing the records off of microfilm and her partner was transferring what she had found on to a database on a laptop.

This laptop was left at the library, and was free to anyone who wanted to access the database on it.

Some of the records were almost illegible, but this lady had a magnifying glass to try and decipher some of the entries on the microfilm, even though they were on a viewer.
I found out that they had been doing this work for over 8 years.

The dedication and commitment of these wonderful folk is absolutely amazing.

So I would like to thank them, and all members of Family History Groups across the land, who do this relentless task to enable me and countless others, to make our task that much easier.
