One must remember that in Hampshire there are almost 670 parishes - a mammoth task to transcribe - and so we have chosen the ones that we are regularly asked for at Open Days and Exhibitions.
The list below also shows roughly how much has been completed in each parish, but please remember that small village parishes generally will take much less time that large parishes. The current list therefore is:
In the early stages:
Alton, St Lawrence (very large parish); Portsea, St John; Sherborne, St Andrew; Kingsley, St Nicholas; Hursley, All Saints; Northwood, Isle of Wight.
In advanced stages: Andover, St Mary - 90% complete; Alverstoke, St Mary (very large parish) - 75% complete; Romsey, St Mary and St Ethelflaeda (very large parish) - 70% complete; Portsmouth, St Thomas (very large parish) - 75% complete; Portsea, St Mary Baptisms - complete and ready for publication; Burley, St John Baptist - 70% complete; Petersfield, St Peter -complete and ready for publication this month; Ringwood, St Peter and St Paul - 65% complete; Bembridge, Isle of Wight, Holy Trinity - 90% complete; Herriard, St Mary - 95% complete; Tadley, St Peter - 95% complete; Fareham, Ss Peter and Paul - 60% complete; Amport, St Mary - checking complete; Eling, St Mary - complete and ready for publication; Southampton, St Mary - 95% complete; Brading, Isle of Wight, St Mary - complete and ready for publication; Milford, All Saints - 95% complete; St Mary, South Stoneham - 85% complete; Bishopstoke - 55% complete; Otterbourne, complete and in for checking; Morestead - complete and in for checking; All Saints Hordle, 100% complete and ready for publication; St Mary Magdalen, Milton - 95%; All Saints, Fawley - 95% complete.
Watch the CDs available page for new parish records for when they have been completed our printers can start catching up with the backlog that their problems caused.
There are many others also being covered as the process of transcribing is carried out, but most are in the very early stages and these include all other parishes in the Isle of Wight. It must be remembered that checking takes almost as long as transcribing in the first place.
