I don’t think BMDshare is running at the moment.

You could add postems to the freebmd entries giving the extra information from the certificates.

There used to be a site BMDshare - not sure if it’s still functioning, but you can easily check yourself

If you have a Public Tree on Ancestry add the certificates as this will help many other researchers now and in the future.

Check via the Search button to see if anyone has Thomas or his known descendants in their tree.

There is plenty of advice online about preserving old documents.

My husband is a decendant of Thomas Burnell b1842 Marsh Gibbon Bucks.
I have found 11 original certificates for the births of children of Joseph Burnell and Martha Whale and a death and marriage cert dating from 1840 to 1864. Would like to share with any decendants that are interested and not sure how to do that other than post on here, hoping someone could advise me. They are very fragile and all have writing on the back relating to the Dwellings Improvement act 1875. I have scanned them all. Also how do I preserve them?
