    This is a very friendly list dedicated to helping people in their genealogical research in the county of Devon. The list is jointly sponsored by GENUKI/Devon http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DEV and the Devon Family History Society http://www.devonfhs.org.uk/ We recommend that you READ the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) file (with answers!) at http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DEV/DevonFAQ BEFORE posting messages to Devon-L. We strongly recommend that you visit The Devon Family History Society web site at http://www.devonfhs.org.uk Here you will find details of membership and information regarding the various indexes that the Society publishes. The Society operates a low cost look up service, available to both members and non-members alike, from its computer databases. A Surnames list shows which Devon names are held in those databases. All Devon marriages from 1754 to 1812 and 1813 to 1837 are available, Publications are available, both printed and on CD. The Devon Family History Society was founded in 1976 and is one of the largest in the country with over 3,500 members. The Society has its own centre in Exeter, The Tree House, which is open three days a week, and contains the following: o Books: a collection of books on local and family history research, trees, wills, and parish documents, also family histories. o Documents: including trees, wills and parish documents o Microfiche: including Devon Censuses and the General Register Office index to births, deaths and marriages 1837-2002 for the whole of England and Wales. If you are already a member of Devon Family History Society can we ask you to please show so when sending and answering messages through this list. The Devon GENUKI Web Site is one of the first places to look on the Internet for information regarding Devon genealogy. We strongly recommend that you explore this site, which can be found at http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DEV This contains information, in some cases quite extensive, about each and every Devon parish, as well as related to the county as a whole. There is an online Devon Gazetteer at http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DEV/#Gazetteers This is a 12,000-item listing of Devon villages, parishes, hamlets, churches, chapels, etc., with links in each case to the page in GENUKI/Devon where more information is to be found about the Devon town or parish in which the place is situated. The Devon section operates one of the, as yet, few in number county OPC systems. The concept of an Online Parish Clerk (OPC), involves identifying volunteers, one or more per parish, who will act as a focus for gathering together transcriptions and name indexes related to that parish (which are not already readily available elsewhere). The notion of Online Parish Clerks should in no way be confused with that of the official (i.e. Parish Council-appointed) Parish Clerks. All OPCs are unpaid volunteers who are willing to assist others in their genealogical research. To find out which parishes have been adopted go to http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DEV/OPCproject The Devon List Team
