5 Or­der the cer­tifi­cate

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BRICK WALLS -

If I had a pound for ev­ery fam­ily his­tory query we have solved in the mag­a­zine by just or­der­ing the cer­tifi­cates, I would be a rich woman (or at least richer). It’s easy to be put off by the cost of cer­tifi­cates, and just rely on the in­for­ma­tion gleaned from the GRO in­dexes (es­pe­cially now that you can ac­cess mother’s maiden name on pre-1911 births and age at death on pre-1866 deaths ex­clu­sively on the in­dexes hosted on the GRO’s web­site at bit.ly/gro-search-in­dexes). How­ever, if your re­search has thrown up more than one op­tion, or­der­ing the cer­tifi­cate might be the only an­swer – and with birth and death PDFs cur­rently only £6, it’s never been more af­ford­able. Re­mem­ber that if you end up with cer­tifi­cates that don’t re­late to your fam­ily, you can of­fer them up to other re­searchers via the ‘Un­wanted cer­tifi­cates’ sec­tion of our fo­rum.
