September FreeBMD Update

The FreeBMD Database was updated on Friday 10 September 2010 and currently contains 190,255,893 distinct records (242,443,660 total records). The new records this update are mainly between the years 1938 and 1951.

The FreeBMD project continues to advance. Ancestry.co.uk already offers a full BMD index.  FindMyPast.co.uk gets ready later this month to add a full marriage index to the full birth index already available. Meanwhile the costly official Identity and Passport Service initiative is once again foundering on the rocks of bureaucracy.
