Anyone In Isle Of Man Willing To Search BMD'S
« on: Friday 11 April 08 14:23 BST (UK) »
Hi i have noticed a lot of people needing help with 20th century BMD'S if only there were a site with some listed like the BMD Project in England & Wales..

Is there anyone outhere who could perhaps help a few people who has access to these records

I am trying to find a marriage of a William J Halsall of Liverpool to a widow named Elizabeth Bridson for hubby Percy.. 1912 onwards....

and it just seems impossible unless you go to the Island yourself..

Thanks for reading this Colette

if you know the approx year buy a certificate from general Registry (see www.gov.im)  - marriages in early 20th C are on www.lawsons.ca

Hello Colette,

It looks as though there's no need to visit the IOM. You seem to have got some help.

If you require more see Tricia's post on the Catherine Jane Cannell thread http://tinyurl.com/599ywz

In case you haven't yet found what you want -  you could try
www.manxbmd.com
Some of the entries have been transcribed but mostly you have to wade through images of the pages but at lease it's in years and by first letter of surname.

Might help

Cheers

THere are quite a lot of Isle of man records on line. I did some looking up for a cousin and I know I found all I wanted. Long time ago so why not Goog;le Isle of Man genealogy and see what comes up.

Thanks for that but as I live in the Island and have access to all the records plus a worldwide sub to Ancestry, I think I have all the access I need.   The BMD site is one that doesn't always come up when googling, etc so thought I would pass it on, just in case.

Cheers
