Hi Kathleen, The BVRI second edition has about 10.4 million births and 1.9 million marriages on 17 discs. I purchased mine from the www(.)familysearch(.)org for about 20 dollars U.S. The records run from 1500's to 1906. So far I have only found 1 record of my own, but lots for other people.

Hi Teresa, Thanks for looking but wrong Noble's all of mine come from the North East. I will still keep these as reference just in case some may have moved south. As indeed we all move about. I have found the marriage of Edward and Henrietta in Newcastle 1896. Many thanks Regards Anne-Marie

Hi Colin ; I can't find the marriage. Check births too and the earliest birth in Norfolk for Ann Hudson is 1784 or 1785 both spelt as Hutson. The earliest birth for John Dickerson in Norfolk is 1797 listed as Dixon. Sorry.
