to everyone who made contact - the response far exceeded anything we
expected! Thanks too for the offers of help - all will be gratefully
accepted and over the next few months we hope more and more family
members will feel able to contribute articles, pictures, updates -
anything that will be of interest. By the way, if you can add to
information given here or think anything is incorrect, please let us
know so our databases can be updated.
just heard that we've been given permission to pass on GRO numbers to
family members from our very extensive collection. We're also going to
be able to create a link to the General Register Office through
STENTIFORD.ORG and by the end of this year, a direct on-line ordering
service through this link should be in place. This should make it
very much easier for anyone who wishes to purchase birth, marriage or
death certificates but especially those people living abroad or a long
way from a look-up facility.
hope the GRO Site works a bit better than that of the 1901 Census - like
everyone else, we're so disappointed!
