Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks a group of volunteers who collect, collate and transcribe records for one (or more) adopted parishes. They research as many sources as possible to find all the available historical data they can find on a parish. Typically this includes census, parish registers, cemetery records and parish histories. Records are transcribed, and in order to promote further private research, are made freely available to any genealogist. This may include census, parish transcripts, bishop's transcripts and churchwardens accounts, overseers accounts, land tax records, postal directory extracts, church & village histories, etc. An OPC is a volunteer and should not be confused with the civil Parish Clerk appointed by a Parish Council.
