The following study has been registered and is also on the Worldwide One-
Online Parish Clerk scheme
My intention is to connect, insofar as possible, all individuals into a complete genealogical history. Currently there are about 7,500 individuals so connected.
My approach is generally to work on individual names and try to complete the work for one surname before moving on to another. At present the work is in abeyance due to eye problems and pressure of other projects, such as the Devon Wills Project. The current family I am focussing on is the RULE family, with around 700 individuals to link. At present I have about half of those linked.
Originally, from IGI, I had around 50,000 individuals to link. (I aim to complete the study only down to 1837.) Some have proved to be duplicates, but the number gradually increases as I add individuals from before the parish register period and from other parishes. (In principle, I try to trace each person that entered Camborne back one generation. But I frequently get interested and trace them further.)
Among other things, the Cornish censuses are completely available online and I have
no plans to re-
Quite a lot -
Additional source material includes: All the published subsidies, musters etc. The Protestation. The Visitations. Many IPMs. Some wills (there will be many more as part of another ongoing project). Various histories. Some manorial documents (another ongoing project). Probably other things that don't come immediately to mind.
Priorities for 2014: Getting some eyesight back! Processing a lot of information collected from Cornwall Record Office, Family History Library and other places.
*Monumental inscriptions are being recorded by others, including Cornwall FHS
