Uk Census Online Free

Now you can trace your ancestors free from 1841 to 1891. The site Free Cen has a Data base that you can search for free to find your Ancestors in the English Census. It is not complete but it is being added too all the time.
In doing a search i found that the results were better when i put in a small amount of information. This will be a very good resource that is free for everyone.

Gallipoli And The Anzacs

This is a good resource for researching Australians at Gallipoli. The Anzacs were the Australians and New Zealand Army Co. So many lost their lives here and every year on the 26th April we remember them on Anzac Day.

UK BMD Records Order Online

The GRO in England has made some changes to their fee's and services. Due to an increase in current demand for Certificate's present orders will be subject to a five day additional dispatch time. The GRO have also reviewed their range of service's. They have now withdrawn their reference checking service. The cost of the certificates will increase from 7 pounds to 9.25 pounds. This means that you will have to know the references for your certificates. You can find the references when you find the record on the site Free BMD.

Free Genealogical Resources

If you read the post before this one ,i mentioned an interview with Cyndi Howell who owns Cyndi's List. If you are new to family research you may not have heard of the List. It is a free categorized and cross referenced index to genealogical resources on the Internet. In the interview Cyndi says that she works 12 hours a day 7 days a week. We are all aware that once we start on the research journey ,it is hard to stop .
Take a look at Cyndi's list you may find the link to some missing information for your family tree.

BMD Records Order Certificates Online

I have just been helping a friend order a Birth Certificate from the UK online. Once you know how its a straight forward process.
I recommend that you first find the birth, death or marriage details at FreeBMD-Search. Make a note when looking at the record for the name of the District, the Vol and the page number as you will need this information when placing your order for the certificate.
Here is the link for the FreeBMD-Search

This link will take you to the site to order your Birth, Death or marriage certificates online.
