Hi
Over the years I have bought many certificates from GRO.  I am a transcriber for FreeReg Kent but didn't know about putting information from the certificates in FreeBMD.  I have not had a lot of luck using FreeBMD.  I am willing to input the information if I know how to.
Regards
Dianne

Hi there,
Sorry for being the dim one but how do you add a postem? Should I be able to see an 'add postem' button? I can see the envelope symbol for viewing postems already attached.
Regards, Tony.

Added. Found it! Clicked on the 'info' box and 'add postem' is an option on next page. ;D

and if you want to search the Postems to see if any of your surnames have notes against them, use this:

Thanks for the tip. :)

Do you know if it is possible to search for surname and registration district together? If it is possible please explain how to do it.
I've tried but get 'no results with that criteria' and yet I've seen results from individual searches that contain both. With a name like Wilson there are numerous results from all over the country and I'm really only interested in Wigan and nearby.

Active links are now (after 13/04/2018) indicated by bold red italics. Just click on them.
The only stupid question is the one not asked

WILSON; Lancs, Lanrks.
BERRY; Lancs.
BORASTON; Salop, Worcs,
TYLER; Salop, Herefords.

Did you enter the fathers' names and occupations?   The witnesses?   The address?    These are the things searchers need to know, as they will already have the names in many cases.

I think if you put the surname in "Information contains" and the District in "Record contains", you should get the results you are looking for.
