When you use freebmd you will see that above results is a percentage figure.........that tells you what percentage of records for that period has been transcribed

You could also read the INFO section on the site to get answers to any questions you have about freebmd

And......don't forget LancsBMD

No - it's not - Freebmd is an on going project. Another free site you might be able to make use of is

How kind of someone to send you the info, and for you to have indicated on the thread - it would stop other people spending time on trying to find data if your helper would in future post on the relevant thread something like ' PM sent with births' ;-)

i dont know how to "mark it as closed "(other)...thanks..but at the end of the day it is up to me to state that a P M has been sent...i forgot this time,but will bear it in mind :-) :-)

On some of the posts, you should have the option - report, edit, delete, tick as answered (or something like that) . Use the last

Alternatively, edit your opening post - you can then add 'Answered' to the title.
