The Evesham Index   

The Evesham Index was created by Sarah Minney as a means of storing information collected whilst researching her family history.  She then started to add entries for Evesham people and so from one box and a packet of index cards it has grown over 17 years to what it is today – 16 boxes containing an estimated 20,000 card references. Some individual names are represented on many cards while others may only be mentioned on one.

Add to that the 400 or so names I can now add from my own family tree, and all the extracts for each name at one card per extract…

What exactly can be found in the index?

Extracts from Parish registers, Directories, Monumental Inscriptions, War memorials, Poll books, Medal rolls, Wills, Census returns, Entries from local and national newspapers and GRO birth, marriage and death entries.

Local villages such as Bengeworth, Bretforton, Badsey, Great & Little Hampton and the Littletons are also represented.


Another interesting inclusion is the contact details for anyone who has requested information about a name, so that future enquirers can be put in touch with others who are researching the same names.

Looking for an elusive ancestor? Hit a brick wall?

I’m not promising that the index will solve your problems, but there’s no harm in trying.
