Hi, i was wondering does anyone know how accurate the info on the FBMD website is ?
i'm trying to find info on someone born in 1977 but no matter what year i put in EG: 1976-1978 the info i'm looking for doesn't come up.
Any info in regards to my question will be gratefully received
Birth registrations for the year 1977 are net yet completed. There are coverage charts available ......
Thanks for the info
Hi Gordon ,the address you gave me for the 1977 list of birth registration coverage charts doesn't work, i type it in on google and it says 404 not found, is there any other way to access it?
Go on the main FBMD site, and click on "Information". Then "Statistics", then "Coverage charts".
That will give you all the info.
Hi Kevin. thank you
If you are able to access ancestry.co.uk they have GRO births transcribed up to 2005.
Some years ago I transcribed for a FreeBMD 'syndicate'. The process was rigourous and thoughtful and gave me confidence that the project would produce accurate results.
Though they may not have finished transcribing the years you want they do appear to have the images on the site. Go to the main page and click View Images. You then have to narrow your search down to Births/Year/Quarter/1st letter of surname which brings you to a list of pages. You have to guess where in the list the surname you want will be found and move up or down depending on what you find.
Thank you for the information
