I have a website at www.pursglove.org.uk which is essentially a listing, by town, of many of these records. They are in brief form and a search can take hours to do properly.
For example, Bakewell in Derbyshire, UK, has records listed chronologically and grouped in known family sets. The links between families in unclear.
To improve on this arrangement, I have started to create a database of all of the record entries. Over the last week I have entered almost half of the Derbyshire Pursgloves, only the rest of the world to go......
I have estimated that at my current rate of productivity, the entry of records and the writing of software to search the records may take a full year to achieve. I am also considering a means of members being able to update the database, but that is another bridge to cross in the future.
I am also looking at the inclusion policy. With my website, I refused to add entries that were less than 100 years old. This was done to avoid issues with data protection. However, since the UK government were willing to release the 1911 census data a year early, I may review this decision.
It will be interesting to see how this project develops.
