My 2 x g grandmother was born in Hereford around 1825 but I have never found her baptism, either original or as a transcription. I tried the Herefordshire Record office: "I see from your website that you keep parish registers and Bishop' Transcripts in microform. Do you sell copies of the microfiche/film, as some other record offices do? If not, are there any plans to do so? Are there any plans to make these records more accessible, particularly by digitisation?" Their reply: "While we can print copies from the Parish Register and Bishop’s Transcripts microfilms we do not sell whole copies and do not have any plans to do so. I understand it may be possible to purchase films from the Latter Day Saints who filmed them although I understand this is sometimes quite complicated as permission must be obtained from each incumbent for the registers that are on the microfilm. I am not sure how other record offices go about this process. We are currently in talks with both the Latter Day Saints and Ancestry about the digitisation of these records that will then go on their websites. However this is in the very early stage and no decisions have been made. I am sorry not to have better news for you at present." While this exchange does not get my enquiry farther forward, I thought others with connections in Herefordshire might be interested in the information.
