About My-Parish

This online platform is co-ordinated by Beat Kümin and Joe Chick on behalf of the interdisciplinary Warwick Network for Parish Research, founded in 2003 to support a wide range of initiatives on parish history, art, heritage and culture from the Middle Ages to the present. Originally hosted by WordPress - on a platform set up in collaboration with Joanne Anderson, David Beck and Donald White in November 2012 and then looked after by John Morgan until 2016-17 - this online resource - re-launched on the Warwick server with the help of Dave Toulson and the History department in 2017 - is aimed at any individual or group with parish-related interests, hoping to facilitate exchange between universities, research institutions, history / heritage societies and local communities.
