CORNWALL ONLINE PARISH CLERKS - helping bring the past alive
|Our worldwide group of volunteers aims to|
All information is provided to researchers on the understanding that transcripts are, at best, a secondary source and only a guide. As errors may occur, original documents should always be checked.
OPCs collectively consider possible copyright, data protection and privacy issues.
In order to preserve an OPC's work, records donated to our database (C-PROP) will remain online indefinitely and be passed on to a subsequent OPC for that specific parish. Error corrections will be made, when these are notified and confirmed. Copyright remains with the transcribers, so they can donate to whichever other free-to-use resource they choose, and OPCs should not publish the transcripts (in whole or in part) without permission.
Additionally, OPCs may choose to maintain websites for their own parish(es) or combine with others to provide a site which covers related areas; others might create parish reconstructions.
Volunteers perform the following roles:
If a particular record does not appear in the current WiP list as being transcribed by anyone, the coordinator or the database administrator should feel able to pass that record to one of our keen transcribers to be dealt with, unless the OPC for the parish in question has indicated a wish to transcribe the records for that parish, and has donated a file to our database within the past 12 months.
