FreeBMD reminder

A reminder to check the FreeBMD Database which was last updated on Sat 18 Oct 2008 and currently contains 156,886,636 distinct records (202,109,955 total records).

For those not familiar with FreeBMD, it's an ongoing project, the aim of which is to transcribe the Civil Registration index of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales.

Most of the additions are in the 1920s, although there are still gaps in prior years. Work is starting on the 1930s.
