Welcome to the Malcolm McCarthy Document Collection website which contains the complete index of the Malcolm McCarthy Collection in a searchable database. The index is completely searchable and each index entry contains a link to a transcript or picture in PDF format. There are approximately 2000 documents contained in the database and over 21,000 index entries linking to those documents. For a potted history on how the Collection came about, see Malcolm's write up "How the Collection evolved".


This same collection can be found, in a different form at the Cornwall OPC website, see "Cornwall History Links" on the menu on this page, where you will find links to other Cornwall History sites of interest.


If you find the document you want is missing from the site please email Malcolm using "Contact Us" on the menu on this page and he will send it to you. This service is entirely free and is made possible by the team of volunteer transcribers and indexers who have assisted Malcolm. The original documents in the Malcolm McCarthy Collection are all lodged at Cornwall Record Office. Malcolm has the photographs of many of them that were sent out to the transcribers all over the world and you can request these photographs as well where they exist. We hope you enjoy looking at this wonderful resource made possible by the volunteer labour of Malcolm and his team between 2002 and 2010. Malcolm would also love to hear from you if have any old documents which would be relevant to this site.


Please report any problems, comments or ideas for improvement of this website using "Contact Us" on the menu on this page.


Thanks for visiting the Malcolm McCarthy Document Collection website.
