Birth records on GR up to 2008

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Just noticed that the birth records on GR now go up to 2008.
Thought it was a misprint until I found my grandaughters birth ref index.

It is individual name indexing that Platinum members have access to.

I have just checked it does not apply to the quarterly birth records other members have access to

:-D :-D :-D

I thought the government had decided not to release any more birth, marriage and death indexes to go online after 2006 which are on Findmypast.

I wonder why BrightSolid have decided to put these on Genes and NOT on Findmypast?
