Buried in the newsletter is the sentence "Meanwhile we plan to make other records on microfilm, such as RG 4 and PROB 6, which are very popular at the FRC, available online within the next couple of years." New records online are always of interest, but what are RG 4 and PROB 6?
RG 4 is General Register Office: Registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths surrendered to the Non-parochial Registers Commissions of 1837 and 1857. Find details here.
PROB 6 is Prerogative Court of Canterbury and Related Probate Jurisdictions: Administration Act Books, 1559-1858. Details here.
Although I've not used them these look like useful records to have online.
