BMD cer­tifi­cates likely to go dig­i­tal

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

The pos­si­bil­ity of pro­vid­ing Gen­eral Reg­is­ter Of­fice (GRO) copies of civil reg­is­tra­tion cer­tifi­cates dig­i­tally has been dis­cussed in the House of Lords. Baroness Scott of Need­ham Mar­ket has put for­ward an amend­ment to the Dereg­u­la­tion Bill, sug­gest­ing that in­stead of solely of­fer­ing ‘full’ copies of birth, mar­riage and death cer­tifi­cates, sup­ply­ing elec­tronic ver­sions of the doc­u­ments would be more ef­fi­cient for both the GRO and re­searchers.
