Which Registration Books? Do you mean the Civil Registration of Births, Deaths, and Marriages, or Parish Registers, and which country?

Thankyou

Original parish registers are mostly held in County Record Offices.  Once they have been digitised, the images are sufficient for our research.  Given the age and fragility of many records, archivists are often reluctant to let the public handle the originals.

Hi Thankyou for all your replies but we have been unable to find my grandfather and his brothers birth l dont think they were mistranscribed  as they were born 2 years apart the only thing we can think of is that the woman who there father married 2 years later was not there mother and we thought we could look at the books, l cant remember what they were called l only used them once a good few years ago at l think it was called Middleton House in Islington. I have found records nearly 2oo years ago in Italy and very frustrated l cant find their births in UK in 1876.

once again thank you

The civil record of birth you can look at the indexes, try freebmd and once you have found it, then using that index apply and pay for a birth cert from the GRO, you can't search birth certificates.... you of course can search parish records for a baptism

It is possible that if they were born in the 1870's that the births were not registered.  The birth registration system was tightened up at the end of that decade.
