Finding birth, marriage and death certificates

In the UK..

How would you go about looking for facts and dates about your ancestor’s lives? What resources would you use? If you’re searching for records, where do you look?

One way is to to search for birth, marriage and death certificates just to name a few.

Ancestry.com claims to have all the records you’ll need to find out information including certificates from 1837 to 18 months prior to the present date. You need the following information for a birth certificate: District Name,  Volume Number,  Page Number, Month of registration.

Click here for the link.

This means you need to search the Birth/Marriage/Death (BMD) indexes before you can order the certificate. These can be found at free BMD and search my past.

Alternatively, check out www.gro.gov.uk to obtain certificates for £7 apparently which are cheaper than ancestry.co.uk.

In Pakistan..

Some questions to ask:

Can a person go to the local union council and obtain a birth, marriage or death certificate for another person?
Can a person obtain via mail (from the Pakistan government) a birth, marriage or death certificate for another person?

Who Do You Think You Are 2012

Once again it’s that time of year again when my favourite program is back on our screens. It starts August 15th and I can’t wait to see what revealing information we get to see about famous people that we all know. I’ve had a peek at the promo running on BBC 1 and also taken a wander to Wiki to find out who will appear on the show..

Series 9

Samantha Womack (Ronnie from Eastenders)
Gregg Wallace (that guy from Masterchef)
Alex Kingston
Annie Lennox
Hugh Dennis
William Roache (Ken Barlow from Coronation Street)
Celia Imrie
Patrick Stewart
John Bishop
John Barnes (football player)

The first episode will be on Wednesday on BBC One at 9pm and like last year I will be stuffing my face full of food as I watch since it is a few minutes after Iftar. Make sure to watch it or catch up on Iplayer if you can’t make it. 😀
