BMSGH has over 16,000 unwanted certificates from all over the country and you can get a copy for a mere £3.00. Check out the list on the BMSGH Shop website.

If you download the pdf file you can search using the chapter markings on the left, or globally, using the (binoculars) search. The marriages are, however, only in groom alphabetical order. You will definitely need to use the search engine to find brides.  Note: an Adobe anomaly seems to split the first and middle names on searches, giving the middle name first.

Have you heard of the Evesham index ? Apparently, it was on the our old website almost from it's inception. The original creator was looking for a new manager as she was downsizing her house. Mike Yegwart managed to extract a list of surnames and Bill Burgoyne put them up on our site.When the site was re-built recently the data was simply transferred to our website, where it can be found under Worcestershire Resourses.

NEC1

Throughout the 4th to the 7th November the Federation of Family History Societies  (FFHS) ran a stall at the Hobbycrafts exhibition at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre.  The FFHS is an umbrella organisation for all family history societies, being an educational charity which represents, advices and supports the local family history societies.

Bromsgrove's branch chairman, Mike Yegwart, was there on Friday, the 5th November, with Malvern FHS, intoducing visitors to the benefits of joining a society.  As this was a national exhibition many were from the far flung reaches of our island, necessitating a quick look up for their nearest society.  As usual there were the usual "I'm stuck" query, but there were also quite a few adoption type problems, as well.
