Our Society is involved in recording the inscriptions on gravestones and memorials within the Diocese of York. The year 2012 has been our best year ever for number of recordings completed, Our recent completions Stockton on Forest, Sand Hutton, Crayke, Murton with Osbaldwick, Warthill with Holtby and Huntington. are all available on CD from the Society
Our work will continue this year and our first completion will be Sutton on the Forest, we then hope to work our way through Rufforth, Bilbrough, Stillington, Brafferton Wighill and the Poppletons in no particular order.
We have a small team of helpers who do a variety of jobs, i.e. photographing, cleaning memorials, typing up inscriptions, checking the recordings and compiling the data and producing a CD of the completed work.
This is a wonderful opportunity for members to get to know one another in the Family History circle, whilst at the same time producing a product that spreads family history knowledge and brings much needed income into the Society. Please feel free to approach any committee member, myself or any of my team if you feel you could help in any way.
Much of our work and photographs can be seen on our facebook page we look forward to welcoming a few new faces to our group this year.
