GeneralTranscripts are made from handwritten and sometimes ancient, faded or damaged parish records; individual entries may be difficult to read leading to a "best guess" when either BLANK? or ? is entered into the transcript (usually presented as No Data). Likewise monumental inscription wording may be damaged by weathering, algae, lichen or plant growth. Whilst every effort is made to ensure accuracy of the NFHS transcripts, errors may occur, therefore transcripts should be regarded as a good resource to be confirmed by additional research. Researchers finding parish record errors should report them by emailing the details to [email protected] or in writing to NORS Transcription Error c/o Kirby Hall address. Monumental inscription errors should be reported to [email protected] or in writing to Monumental Inscription Error c/o Kirby Hall address.
