In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

Thanks D,

Tried it out, wasn't sure what Findmypast was, I thought it was the LDS, but it's not to do with them. It's the same mob who used to run 1837online.com which I thought was a major rip-off, charging people to look at pages of the BMD online, not indexed, and stuff I could go to the library in North Shileds and look at for nowt.  >:(

Still I wanted to see what they had and it was 8 quid for however many credits, 40 or 50 I think, so I decided to give it a go. It wasn't like you had to pay 70 quid or whatever. Nothing relating to what I'm looking for but downloaded some stuff that might be useful in the future depending on where my Yorkshire research leads.   ???

They still have this incredibly annoying practice though of offering up stuff after a search, which is a page of info on which the name you are looking for MIGHT be featured, and you have to use a credit in order to find out. And more often than not it's not there of course. And they boast of winning some Queen's Award To Industry as well...swindlers.
