Parish Mouse


Until now the only time I have come across a parish mouse is when I have been handling original registers and found nibbling around the edges and a certain, distinctive mousey odour !!

However today I have come across the Parish Mouse website where this particular mouse is putting online transcripts from historical books that he/she has collected over the years. What a lovely idea and how generous of the Mouse to share with fellow family historians.

I had a look around the site, but couldn’t find a name for Parish Mouse, does anyone know who it is ?

Cyndi’s List

Picture1In the early days of internet genealogy Cyndi Howell started one of the first websites that consisted of links to other websites of interest to genealogists.

That was 15 years ago now and Cyndi and her list are still going strong, so take a look if you haven’t been there before or renew your acquaintance if you haven’t been there for a while!
