Incorrect Link [7 November 2012]

FamilySearchWiki for England leads to the wrong web page. More info coming in a couple of hours.

Civil Registration in England is the FamilySearch article on the process of civil registration in England.


Page update [7 November 2012]

I hope you will not mind any of the changes I have made to this page.

  • Have now checked all the websites mentioned and found a few dead links. The dead ones will be found in interjections I have made on the Edit page.
  • Have expanded some of the website explanations.
  • Have moved the section on Vital Statistics up where it is visible as soon as the page is opened.
  • Would like to replace the postal codes map with something more useful, such as the location of the General Register Offices mentioned. I had a look through Wikimedia Commons but did not find anything suitable in size or content. Some of the maps illustrating the regions would be good on the appropriate place pages.

BTW, I live in England and first learned genealogy here thirty years ago. However I only discovered WR in February of this year. Up till now I have been working on my family in Ontario, Canada, and on the Ontario, Canada place pages.
