To list an unwanted certificate:

If you have a certificate of a Birth, Marriage or Death that you have found unconnected to your ancestors and you would like to pass it on to where it may be useful - start a new thread, with a title along the lines of :

Surname Forename, Date, Town/Village, County.
In the message body you could then put full details and type of certificate  

Hastings John, 2nd March 1862 at Winchelsea, Sussex. Death Certificate aged 55 years, widow living at 5 Spring Steps, Winchelsea.

This can then be followed by any other details that you have and possibly why you sent for it (thought it was 3 x grt gr Father) this could indicate to other researchers what lines you are following.

Do not post any personal information in the message – use the ‘Private Message’ facility to exchange details of how you can pass the certificate on.

Hi Viv

If you wanted, you could send them to me direct, or copies of them and I will post the details on the boards.

Will provide e-mail by personal message

Thanks for that Chris, I'll sort them out over the next few days, I'll probably have more in future as well.
Regards,
Viv.

This was recently asked on another board:
Quote
How do we make contact to see if you have any certificates that might help me for instance?

Answer:
just check the topics on the appropriate board (A to G, H to M, ... etc) for any names you need.

However, I've noticed that not everybody puts their offers in the right group, so here is another possibility:
- click on Search RootsChat
- click on Advanced Search
- enter the name you are searching for
- go to the bottom of the page and click on "Check all" (all boxes will now be unchecked)
- click on the boxes
  Unwanted Birth, Marriage, Death Certs A to G
  Unwanted Birth, Marriage, Death Certs H to M
  Unwanted Birth, Marriage, Death Certs N to S
  Unwanted Birth, Marriage, Death Certs T to Z
- click on "search"

This will search all "unwanted certs." boards in one go.

If you see a cert. that might be from your people, contact the person offering the cert. by sending them a personal message (PM)

Hope this helps
Bob
