Good news for St Helena Ancestry Researchers

42 000 St Helena Births Marriages and Burials have been transcribed by Chris and Sheila Hillman, based in Hereford, UK.

It is intended to make Chris Hillman’s information from the database available to all interested parties. The challenge will be to ensure maintenance of the database’s integrity. How this could be done remains to be seen .

Meanwhile, Chris would be happy to undertake look-ups and is not currently asking for a fee. He would filter or search for named people or families and pass on a record extract from his Excel spreadsheet.

He also has a list of ships as mentioned in the various church registers resulting from the services provided in Baptism, Marriage or Burial to crew or passengers. Chris hopes to build up background on the maritime importance of the island at that time.
