Anyone know how to get on the Wiltshire OPC site?
I keep trying and am told access denied.
A forum on rootsweb says you have to register but I can't find anywhere to register.

If you go to the main opc site www.onlineparishclerks.org.uk/ the Wiltshire coordinator is listed, you can click on her name and send an email, hopefully she should know what the problem is and point you in the right direction.

It's not letting me in either and as you say i can see nowhere to register.

I think some of the sites are having problems getting volunteers

The link http://www.wiltshire-opc.org.uk/genealogy/ is no longer valid for some reason. Either the url has been changed, the site no longer exists or it's server is down.

You could try later in case it is the latter, otherwise report the broken link to the UKBMD using their contact page.

Many thanks Stuart will look on the main opc site and contact the coordinator.

Inspector Green Pen, I have been trying the site on and off for ages.
