More registers available
The Society has recently purchased marriage and baptism records for Christ Church, The Quinton.
Getting them into an easily readable format has taken a lot of effort and some complex programming by our website designer.
The society is very excited by the discovery of the Quinton National School Registers and School Log Books. The records begin in 1872, and obviously constitute an important historical record for Quinton. The society’s new research group has transcribed the original handwritten information into computer-readable format, and this has enabled us to make the information available online. We hope that this is just the beginning of an exciting and informative “Archive” banner on the website, serving many researchers into local and family history. I would like to extend my thanks to Quinton Church School for allowing the society access to these most valuable records. I am sure that the School will be delighted that the information in these delicate documents has been preserved, and made available to a worldwide audience.
The society has obtained permission from the Trustees of Birmingham and Midland Society for Genealogy and Heraldry to use the transcript of "Christ Church, The Quinton : Monumental Inscriptions and Burial Ground Plan". This gives the locations and inscriptions of all the graves in the Burial Ground. The documents have now been scanned, and they are available below. I am indebted to the Trustees, and especially the late Pauline Page, who carried out the original work. I would suggest that if you require any further research, see the BMSGH website at www.bmsgh.org
I am very pleased that our site has been such an invaluable source since we added the 'archive' section. The emails received, from all over the world, have been very encouraging. Yes, we will keep up the good work!
