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); Basingstoke, St Michael; Portsea, St John; Cowes, Isle of Wight, St Mary; Sherborne, St Andrew; Kingsley, St Nicholas; Gosport, Holy Trinity.
In mid stages: Gosport, Holy Trinity; Hursley, All Saints; Ropley, St Peter; Fordingbridge, St Mary the Virgin; Cliddesden, St Leonard and Sherfield English, St Leonard; Bishopstoke, St Mary.

Watch the CDs available page for new parish records for when they have been completed and available for sale.
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.
