Civil Registration Indexes

By identifying a person in the civil registration indexes, one is able to order a certificate from the General Register Office.  There are many sites that provide access to the civil registration indexes. FreeBMD is a preferred site since it provides free access and it has an excellent search capacity. FreeBMD searches can be conducted on a district level, county level or national level.
