Research Database
These are the records I have found in all the resources used during my research, except for the registry office index. The original database was DbaseIV and all the files in the ZIP folder will make the database usable in its previous format. If you want to look at the records in another database format i.e. MS Access you will need to Unzip the files first and then import the file with the extension .DBF. If you have any problems e-mail me and I will try to help. I have added the databases as Excel files to help anyone who is not familar with database design.
registry office index
This file contains all the names I have researched in the the registry office index books. The file is in the same format as the history database above and will require the same procedure to view. The index information contains only the start and end dates of the book, the registrar will have to be contacted for more information if you think an individual matches your search.
Cinderford Baptist Church
An interesting publication by Cinderford Baptist Church detailing their history, the church is still active after many years. My family helped build it and worshipped there in the 1800's. This Church was also the local school (in the 1800's) and has many school rooms at the rear (I think a figure of about 50 rooms in all).
birth certificate for John Richard Holyhead
I have made this certificate available on my web for researchers following the Holyhead family line. It is too large to e-mail hence the download option. The file in in ZIP format and needs to be to be unzipped using Winzip or similar. Needs Photoshop or similar to view (.PDD extension)
paper jack from Croydon
Paper Jack; The Croydon eccentric who used to dress only in newspapers and brown paper would periodically come to our house in Montague Road, West Croydon, for a bath. My dad would then let him sleep in our workshed for a while, until he wanted to move on. He often shared a meal with us - and our goats often shared his paper clothing! He was a most charming and well educated man. He once came to meet me from school. There was a dense fog and my mother was very worried, so Paper Jack offered to meet me. I was only six and so proud to have such an unusual companion. - Gwen Brice, Dartmouth, newspaper article, paper unknown. Other information obtained about Paper Jack from the Internet confirms he really did exist
