Re: [GEN-UKBMD] North Wales BMD - the first half million births!    
Date: 29.12.04 21:25

We have just added the following indexes to the North Wales BMD database:

Newtown Registration District - Births Indexes:

Llanidloes Upper sub-district
1837 - 1896 (7,151 births)

Llanidloes Lower sub-district
1837 - 1896 (7,563 births)

Llanidloes sub-district
1896 - 1950 (6,810 births)

Llanidloes Upper and Lower subdistricts were merged in 1896, and the
combined subdistrict was known as Llanidloes.

This brings the number of births on the North Wales BMD database to more than half a million!

Once again, our thanks to Bryn Ellis (the Montgomeryshire co-ordinator for the project) and his team of volunteers, for their work in photocopying, transcribing and checking all these index books; and also to the staff of Newton Register Office, for all the help that they have given with the project.

We have just added the following indexes to the North Wales BMD
database:

Wrexham Registration District - "Church" marriages:

Chirk, St Mary
1837 - 1950
(981 marriages)

With this latest update, the indexes to all the "church" marriages in
Wrexham registration district, from 1837 to 1950, are now on the North
Wales BMD website.

We are making good progress with this project - but there's still a
long way to go!

We would like to thank the staff in the Register Offices who are
allowing us to photocopy or photograph their indexes, ready for the
volunteers to transcribe them; and - of course! - the volunteers, who
are working so hard towards the completion of the project.

We have just added the following indexes to the North Wales BMD website:

Welshpool Register Office

Civil Marriages - Llanfyllin Registration District
1884 - 1917
1694 entries

Until 1898, the Registrar had to be present, by law, at all marriage ceremonies that took place in Nonconformist chapels and Roman Catholic churches - and also, of course, at those that took place in the Register Office! He/she recorded all these marriages in the same Register - hence they are all described as "civil" marriages.

The parishes in the Llanfyllin registration district were:

Llangynyw
Llanfair Caereinion
Llanerfyl
Llangadfan
Garthbeibio
Llanfihangel yng Ngwynfa
Meifod
Llanfyllin
Llanfechain
Llansanffraid ym Mechain
Llandrinio
Llandysilio
Llangedwyn
Llangadwaladr
Llanarmon Mynydd Mawr
Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant
Hirnant
Llanwyddyn
Pennant Melangell
Llangynog

Although the district covered a considerable area, it was (and is!) lightly populated.

Many thanks to Bryn Ellis and his team of volunteers for their work in photocopying, transcribing and checking all these indexes; and to the staff of Welshpool Register Office, for their active co-operation in the project.
