WORLD-WIDE LINK: Certificate Sharing (in English lang. only)
« Reply #7 on: Saturday 10 June 06 06:17 BST (UK) »
Dear Valerie, I just found this link today to a fairly new website which may be helpful to genie's research world-wide.  They accept and share these certificates: birth; death; marriage; and baptism as long as they are in the English language.  Website accepts .PDF and .JPEG files that are uploaded.

Certificate Sharing
http://www.certificatesharing.com

It's a FREE site that allows users to search for certs and/or upload their own.
