As I live in Spain it assumes I want to speak Spanish. I do but prefer English in this case so go to the bottom of the page - once i've dodged all the advertising pop ups - and select language. Then I log in anyway and it gives me the usual access to census records and births for people in the U.S. when i've specified deaths and UK records only.

One day i'll get the hang of their search system :-S
