This year's meeting on Saturday 20 May 2017 at the University of Warwick (10.30 am to 6 pm) focuses on the many opportunities and challenges presented by 'The Digital Parish': new research approaches, online source editions and interactive websites (to name but a few), but also issues of data management / preservation and absorbing / weighing ever more plentiful information. The choice of theme marks the final preparations for the large ‘English and Welsh Churchwardens’ Accounts Database’ to be featured in our 'Projects' section. Anybody with an interest in such questions is very welcome - a great opportunity to gather information, exchange views and embark on a general discussion on current initiatives and future directions.
