CPRdb: are there plans for further updates?
« on: Thursday 10 December 20 13:50 GMT (UK) »
Hello Roots Chat

Does anybody know if the CPRdb people are still active?  It's such a good, reliable resources (if a little clunky with its older software) and the parish notes from churchwarden records are interesting.  It's frustrating though that it's still incomplete, it means you can't conclude research possibilities.
I'd really like to see the remaining Chester wards/parishes on there, and Prestbury parish.

Thanks
Fiona

PS Happy to assist with transcriptions if it would help.

My mother is still listed as a senior transcriber - despite having been dead for two years!

 ;D ;D ;D

She had't done anything for a while before that, either, as she was 99 when she died!

Most of the people who were in charge of the transcriptions now appear to be dead.
I worked on the transcription of Prestbury two years ago and passed the transcription to the inputter (who passed away 16 months ago.  Like you, I found the transcriptions to be really useful and did not want the work of the transcribers to be lost.  I telephoned the university and was given the URL I posted on rootschat so other people could access it.  It appears that the URL will get you to the database but no further, sadly.

The URL for this database is the following:
http://cprdb.csc.liv.ac.uk

This will get you on to the database but, I believe, there are no more parishes available for upload.

I will post on Rootschat if there are any amendments to today's position.

Thank you, Doolittle. 
And thank you to the transcribers (mentioned) above.

I'm glad the university is keeping it available.  I presume they have access to means of data input?
 Development seems to have fallen by the wayside, and it doesn't seem likely that there will be more.  'Tis a pity.
It seems to need a new "consortium" to co-ordinate the project: from the original records, to software issues etc.
