Would You Like to Contribute?

If you've found our Wiltshire OPC website useful and you'd like to make a contribution? That's great!  The more helpers and donors we have, the better our site will become.  Here are some suggestions:

 

You may help in several different ways.

 

  1. Become an OPC and adopt a parish or two.

  2. Become a transcriber and create documents to be added to the site using resources we have available on Wiltshire OPC Templates

  3. Donate items of interest that you have written, researched or transcribed for your own purpose.

Some examples of what could be shared or donated are:-

Photographs

When you are out and about in Wiltshire (or if you live in a Wiltshire parish), take photographs of the village, the church, war memorial and other monuments of interest.  Some of our OPCs live  a very long way from their adopted parish, so they would be especially glad of your help.  - Contact the OPC of the parish you can help with or, if there is no OPC coverage, contact Teresa Lewis (Administrator)

Memorial Inscriptions

Take photographs of and/or transcribe inscriptions on gravestones in your local churchyard, even one or two will be gratefully received - these can often provide crucial clues to researchers all over the world about their ancestors. - Contact Teresa Lewis 

Historical Documents

If you have any historical documents and would like to donate a copy to us, even if it is only one or two pages from a school register or a Kelly's (or other) directory etc. we can add them to the relevant parish pages.  Historical documents which may assist others in their family history research will be most welcome. - Contact the OPC of the parish you can help with or, if there is no OPC coverage, contact Teresa Lewis.

Family Photographs

If you have photographs of your ancestor/s and are happy to share them, we would love to display them in the photo gallery on the appropriate parish page. Photographs help to bring the past to life and make a real difference to the pages.  Please remember that images taken of people in the last 30 years will not be added to the site unless we have specific written permission from the subject to do so. - Contact the OPC of the parish you can help with or, if there is no OPC coverage, contact Teresa Lewis.

War Memorials and Other Commemorative Plaques

If you are out and about in Wiltshire and you pass a war memorial or if in a church or other establishment and they have memorial plaques on display, please consider taking a photograph and or recording the information that appears on the panels.   This will help tremendously to fill gaps in research. - To submit information please contact Teresa Lewis.

 
Thank you
