BLFHS Transcription Group

The Society has an active team of volunteers creating indexed transcripts of Parish Church and Chapel Records: baptisms, marriages, burials, and other records. This work is being undertaken by the team of transcribers listed below, coordinated by Mary Zorkoczy.

  • Susan Ashton
  • Jackie Birch
  • Merry Ibbetson
  • Mair Meek
  • Alison Skipper
  • Mary Zorkoczy (co-ordinator)

Transcribers work as a pair or a small team, depending on the size of the register or Bishop's Transcripts being done, and check one another's work.

At present the group are all long distance members whose homes range from Buckinghamshire to North Lanarkshire. We are in touch with each other via the internet and receive the images to transcribe on CDs or by email. We find transcribing a satisfying way of contributing to the Society and would welcome more members from within or outside the Breconshire area.
