OPC logo


OPC Genealogy

The various county OPC schemes have come together in a loose confederation under the Online Parish Clerks banner. There is a central website which lists the counties participating so far. We have together agreed to protect the ethos of the scheme by successfully registering the copyright of the logo and the term 'Online Parish Clerks (Genealogy)'.


The OPC scheme is a totally non-profit making group of volunteers who give freely of their time to help others with their research. No-one is paid by the scheme, no money is made from this website and no payment is ever requested for any information provided. The very small income from the deliberately non-intrusive advertising on the site just about covers the costs of hosting. This is a fundamental principle of the OPC scheme - we believe public records should be freely available to all. If you feel the same then please help by transcribing records and contributing them!
