WIRKSWORTH Parish Records 1600-1900
I was delighted to receive this letter on 9 July 1999 and wish to thank
the Council for the honour, on behalf of my Doxey ancestors who lived in the
Parish for 300 years, and in remembrance of the 30,000 ordinary parishioners
of Wirksworth, whose only record may lie in this website. I shall strive to
maintain the standard of quality and quantity of information for which this
website is known and Wirksworth deserves.

Dear Mr Palmer,
WIRKSWORTH PARISH RECORDS
I am writing at the request of the Wirksworth Town Council
to thank you for your major undertaking in transcribing three hundred
years of Wirksworth parish records onto the Internet.
We understand that it has taken you three years of dedicated
research and a further year at your computer to complete your project
and we congratulate you on your tenacity!
We consider the records to be an invaluable account of a very
interesting aspect of the history of Wirksworth which will prove extremely
useful to students of history, genealogy and social development. Its
accesssibility on the Internet means that your work will be available
internationally to anyone with a connection or an interest in our town.
The Wirksworth Town Council is pleased to commend and approve
the document and wishes you every success with the increased development
of the site.
