welcome to rootschat Neil, I must say that I found the programme fascinating and gave us an insight of how fast paced it can be in looking for someone when in a short time frame before others get to them (so to speak). Luckily we do not have that problem, but I must ask just what do you do with the unwanted certificates (NBG one's) after you have purchased them, do you shred them due to the details on them or what? (me being nosey).

our NBG certs all stay with the case they were ordered on so we can look back at a later date to see just why they are wrong. We even keep all the applications for certs with checking points that come back no good.

Sorry we have just too many to do anything with, after a case has been closed we microfilm then shred the file including all the certs, it is part of the requirements with our ISO security certificate. We did originally keep every cert in a index but the time to index and file them just was not worth it.

We would also have to be careful with the 50 year rule if we were to pass certs on.

Many thanks for the reply Neil, like I said it was me being nosey, like many of the genealogy programmes that one see's there always seem's to be at least one, if not two questions that the viewer comes up with whilst watching but usually never gets an answer too.

Awww, I want it shown in Australia too.
Sounds like an interesting program, nice to see they found their way into Rootschat - and if you need expert advice - just ask a Rootschatter. ;D
