The "Hackman Series" of publications are copies of the work carried out by the late Mr R.M.B.H Hackman. They consist, in the main, of hand-written transcripts of the surviving B/T's of Hampshire & Isle of Wight parish registers and mainly cover the period 1780 - 1812, though some of Mr Hackman's work covers a significantly wider range for a few parishes. In most cases, the original documents have been written in school exercise books and are un-indexed. There are approximately 300 books and folders covering some 288 Hampshire & Isle of Wight parishes, with a particular emphasis on the parish of Romsey, where Mr Hackman resided for some time. The "Hackman Transcripts" have been filmed and produced on CD.
