Easy, peasy!!

See, it is so easy to find all these records  ;D ;D

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
Archbell - anywhere, any date
Kendall - WRY
Milner - WRY
Appleyard - WRY

Which company is this, and more to the point - what do they charge if you do order from them?!!

Melbel - you will definitely be paying a lot more than 9.25 for any certificate you may purchase via them.   :o

Well, clearly they need to charge you the extra money for all the effort they put in, the wages of the IT workers, food for the backroom psychics, etc so that they could offer you such a streamlined service that can identify all the correct results for one John Smith.

I wouldn't dream of doing so in a 1000 years!  But how many get caught in this way?
