Hello Bob

The Macclesfield Ferrets are a small group of about 10 people who live in
the Macclesfield area, and are interested in Family History. They carry out
projects, the majority of which have been recording memorial inscriptions on
gravestones in the local area.

They have no interest in ferrets ;-)

Their website is:

With regards fiche readers they are not that difficult to buy second-hand.
There are about a dozen on Ebay at this minute. What you want to do (is what
I did) is try to get one from a seller near you so you can pick it up and
test it before you part with the cash.

Hope this helps.

I was persuing the FHSC Website for parish records for sale on Fiche
(Don't have a viewer anyway :-( )

I notice some of the fiches were supplied by the Macclesfield Ferrets
Who are they?! Anyone heard of them.

There is a Fiche viewer here at work , though I don't have much time to use
THe one at thelocal library went bust and is not being replaced. (I felt
begging it from them and repairing it!)

The worst thing is about 10 years ago, I had my own one at work. If only I'd
on to it!
