On this page: [Introduction] [Links to BMD pages] [Colour Coding Explanation]
IntroductionThe BMD information on the pages linked below mostly derive from the GRO Civil Registration Index and Registers and it is reproduced with the permission of the Controller of HMSO. This data is published here free of charge, for recreational research purposes only and is over 100 years old. You may not copy on, transfer or reproduce these records without prior permission from the ONS. It has been compiled from
- The efforts of two different researchers in transcribing the WINDEATT births from the Family Records Centre index.
- Transcriptions of Birth Certificates purchased by family members researching their own trees.
- Suppositions based on other sources, e.g. Census data, monumental inscriptions and death certificates.
For a fascinating and detailed account of the meaning of the information on birth certificates, please see Barbara Dixon's England and Wales Birth Certificate Information
- BIRTHS: 1837-1907
- MARRIAGES: 1837-1907 (although some earlier ones culled from newspapers have crept in).
- DEATHS: 1837-1907 - Not yet started - Please ask.
- BURIALS: Beginnings of a transcription of Burials and MIs.
Disclaimer: These pages do not pretend to be complete because
- THEY ARE ALL STILL "UNDER CONSTRUCTION"
- There are currently more WINDEATT records than other variants. This has arisen as a result of the compilers' original interests. But we would like to collect more WINGETTs and WINGATEs. Also I have not entered all the available data. More will be added eventually.
- The GRO Index itself is far from complete see the Review from the June 2001 issue of Family Tree magazine.
- Birth registration, while compulsory from 1837, was not enforced until 1875 so families did always register their children.
There are probably quite a few mistakes of my own. Please let me know if you find any! And if you can fill in any of the gaps, I would be very grateful. There is a message board where you can leave comments.
Colour Coding, Trees and StraysWhere a record is believed to relate to a person on a particular tree (see TREES page for a brief explanation of each tree) then the record is shaded as follows and I will gradually be inserting links from that family's record to further information on their tree page.
Uncoloured records are for those people where we are not sure of their origin. Where we do have more information about the person or family I shall be gradually linking to it on to a STRAYS page.
