There are a number of old directories which contain varying detail. Those which are out of copyright will be transcribed and placed in our Directories page. Permission will be sought for the remainder. They are not huge tomes like those we are familiar with today, which are useful for weighing things down. Some are very small indeed and may prove impossible to photograph, in which case they will have to be transcribed on site and that will take some time. We would aim to eventually have the whole runs of the directories transcribed.
We hope to work alongside BACSA to further their existing work in Burma, which coincides neatly with our own aims. We are prepared to mount expeditions to cemeteries that are away from the well-trodden tourist areas. In many cases this work can be carried out in conjunction with our Register Book project outlined below.
Church register - weather damage
Extensive collections of church registers, baptism, marriage and death records, still survive in Burma though many are in a decaying state due to acidic inks, insects and Cyclone Nargis. We have managed to transcribe quite a number of these books and these are available in the members' area.
