PARISH REGISTER TRANSCRIPTIONS
The Somerset Archive and Record Service, who own the copyright on most of the records transcribed here, take no responsibility for their accuracy or completeness.
Due to the enlightened attitude of the Somerset Archive and Record Service, anyone wishing to transcribe from fiche copies of parish records they have purchased and to publish them in machine-readable form free of charge may do so provided:
(1) the transcripts are circulated without profit to the transcriber and with a proviso that any subsequent copying is allowed only if free of profit. Anyone wishing to include a subsequent copy as part of a profit-making publication or distribution would have to apply to Somerset Archive and Record Service for permission.
(2) a statement to this effect is included with the posting.
(3) a copy of the transcript is supplied (by Internet or disk) to the Somerset Archive and Record Service.
(4) the transcriber agrees to the transcript being made available to users at the Record Office and to its re-use in Archive Service databases and distribution over the Internet or by other means. The transcriber makes no claim for copyright against any such use by the Archive and Record Service.
We are also indebted to the Parishes who either donated their Registers to Somerset Records Office, or who have given us the results of their transcriptions.
The transcribers have also given their permission for us to use their work.
