Cheshire parish registers project

Is it just me or have more members found omissions in some of the registers that are supposed to be complete.
For instance Davenham PRs from the 1730s to the 1750s have a whole families baptisms missing which I have in my records.

I wasn't aware of any omissions but errors are possible in any transcriptions - do you have some examples?

Thanks,

Jean

I was looking on the project website for somewhere to enquire about possible omissions but couldn't find a link.
So I posted on hear to get a response.
I am at present looking through all my old notebooks to make sure I haven't made any silly mistakes.
Should I post possible omissions on here or is there a better way?

Hi Barry,

A couple of examples will be fine if you have them.

Thanks,

Jean

If you search for the name Atherton you will find an entry for Davenham, of a Mary, baptised 31/12/1736 dau, of Henry and Clare.
There are no other Athertons untill 29/11/1761.
Whereas I have another six children with the same parents, baptised in 1737-40-43-46-47 and 51.

Hi Barry,

Just had a look - try Attherton.  I think they are there.

I thought I had tried all the combinations.
Silly me.
Thanks Jean.
