way forward
« on: Wednesday 17 February 16 09:55 GMT (UK) »
 At night whilst trying to sleep I always get my best ideas on the way forward, I am ready to join a specialized group to help in my research These are the things I am looking for military records from the early 1900's military records from the 2nd world war would like those to include names and dates of prisoners of war in Japenese camps.
 OK I need the name and address records taken in 1939 ...sorry cant remember what they are called but know they aren't a census. I want to be able to check family census and would like ones with birthdates at the side if that is possible and would like this to be included in the initial fee not having to pay any extra. You can pm me if you would like to and I will be very happy to hear your suggestions Thanks for the great help you have given me..... its time this bird was flying anf I feel that this is the way to go.

Hello,

Your thread here http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=741736. gave you the information about FindMyPast for 1939 registers. You would also access census etc.
Take a look there and compare with Ancestry to see what is on offer.
Free sites include Free BMD - only indexes and Family Search.

Libraries in UK often have access to the paid sites so you could try them there if you are in UK.
Rootschatters are also very helpful. :)

Good luck with your research

Library subscriptions vary according to the library and their budget. Most libraries have a website giving details of what is available so you can check before actually making a trip there.
