Lost Cousins Blog

As usual the most recent issue of the Lost Cousins newsletter is full of useful tips, and some opinion. It includes a useful article on why FreeBMD can be a superior option for searching England and Wales civil registration than Ancestry. It has to do with the way Ancestry does searches with middle initials and names which is less user friendly than FreeBMD.

By the way, you are also less likely to run into geography problems with FreeBMD, although I did once found a case where the partners in a marriage were transcribed as being married in different counties.
