Opportunities to volunteer with FreeREG

The aim of FreeREG is to provide a free-to-use, online, searchable database of parish and nonconformist registers of baptisms, marriages and burials for the whole country. Without the invaluable support of our volunteers, this project would not exist.


We will send you images to transcribe, links to specialist software needed (or you can use a pre-formatted spreadsheet) and guidance on how to transcribe. We will provide feedback on your first attempts so that you can see if any changes are needed in order to meet our high quality standards. You will have access to a friendly support group where other volunteers can help you learn, and in turn you will be able to advise others.

To register as a transcriber, please use the button below:

Website Developers and Designers

FreeREG uses MongoDB, Ruby on Rails and RefineryCMS — if you have experience with any of these, or would like to learn, please visit the FreeUK Genealogy volunteer page (opens in new window) — this page also has details of opportunities on our sister projects, FreeBMD and FreeCEN.
