Birth, Marriage & Death Certificates
In England since 1837 all births, marriages and deaths were recorded centrally for the whole nation. Before that time they were recorded in parish registers, or not at all in some cases. For family historians, like myself, this central record is a real gift. Once you get the hang of searching the indexes for your ancestors ordering the certificates is simple and can be done on-line direct from the General Records Office for a fee of £7 a throw. Certificates are subject to copy wright so officially displaying scanned copies on a blog or web site would be in violation of that. Shareing the details on the certificates, however, is perfectly OK. I have included details of all the certificates I have and I will continue to update it as I obtain more. Please add details of any you have for others to share.
