Coldingham one-place study
« on: Monday 24 September 12 15:57 BST (UK) »
I am running a Coldingham one-place study, with a particular interest in the pre-1820 period. For a full description of the study, and the resources available so far, see

http://www.vivdunstan.co.uk/coldingham-ops.html

This one-place study research comes out of my genealogy research. I have strong family connections with Coldingham before 1820, going back hundreds of years.

Hi Viv,
I have just looked at the Coldingham One-Place study. What a great resource and what a lot of work you have put into it. Haven't found anyone relevant to me yet but I have now signed up to be notified when your blog is updated.
Thanks for making this available online. I bought your mortcloth index years ago and must have another look at it now that I have researched a little further back.

Hi Rae,

Thanks for the lovely comments :D The project is ongoing, so more information will be added to the online resources over time. For example I currently have a number of 18th century tax lists that I'm in the process of transcribing, and will be putting the results online.

Any additions will have an article about them in the blog, so, yes, signing up to the blog for new posts there is the best way to find out about changes.

Thanks again.

Viv

Ok I'll paste it in here. It's (*)

I get enough spam already everywhere else that I don't mind posting it on a forum ;D

Please feel free to email me. I'd be happy, for example, to look up your surnames in my mortcloth index.

Thank you very much for posting the access link to your Coldingham one-place study.  My 3x grt grandparents were married in Coldingham in 1832 after an irregular marriage at Lamberton Toll in 1831.  My 4x grt grandfather was shown as a shepherd at Brockholes on that wedding certificate.  Your Index of Witnesses shows 3 possible relatives of mine.  Is this information on a CD and is it possible to purchase from you the complete record of what the people in your Index were witness to?  My wife also has found many references to her Coldingham relatives from your Index.

Thank you.

No the information is not on CD and I have no plans to publish it in that form. If you email me (if you can't find my email address on the Coldingham OPS website send me a private message here) I am happy to check my database and give you more details of the baptisms they witnessed. There is no charge for this check. I am happy to do it for free, if you ask for specific witnesses to be checked.

Alternatively the dates given can be used to trace the baptisms in the microfilm copy of the Coldingham parish registers which is available worldwide in LDS family history centres.

Iíve had a hand-coded HTML site for my one-place studies for years, but it has become rather unwieldy in terms of structure and organisation, and itís not the easiest thing for people to read.

So Iíve now switched to a WordPress-based site, which will have a much more structured approach to the resources that I put online. I am also hoping it will encourage me to add more!

The new site also incorporates the accompanying blog. All the previous blog entries have been imported.

There are redirection pages in place from the old website and the old blog.

But please find the new website at

https://coldinghamoneplacestudy.org/

Many thanks.

Viv
