Some transcriptions are of single records, such as a newspaper article or an individual's biography. Others are records of a single type,  such as an out-of-print book or a census transcription. Still others, such as our Births Marriages Deaths Etc. (B-M-D Etc.) are collections of records from various sources, pulled together here for your convenience

Some transcriptions are verbatim, warts and all. Others were edited by the transcriber. Each transcription's preface spells out which is which. Prefaces also frequently provide additional information, such as how to follow up.

Some transcriptions are done, closed, finished, kaput. Others are still works in progress. Each preface spells out that transcription's status.

Although we strive to produce accurate transcriptions, errors may have crept in. Moreover, there is always a chance the source records themselves included errors. Therefore we recommend using these transcriptions only as a guide, always comparing them to original historical records yourself.
