The Question That Dare Not Speak Its Name...
« on: Thursday 06 June 19 04:33 BST (UK) »
When are we getting the rest? !!

Looking back, last summer (2018), Clare Santry was telling us she had good and bad news:
The bad: The GRO update was going to be delayed until November 2018  >:(
The good: Going to be a complete update of all outstanding material!  :o

Well, the update just happened (June, 2019), a year (or more?) late. And it is not a complete update. Still to be released are pre-1864 marriages, and pre-1878 deaths.

Anyone hear anything? 

I want to get a return on all my overpaid taxes!

We wants it! Precious!

Are you referring to the online GRO indexes?

They currently include -
Births 1837 to 1918 it seems the GRO are classing births over 100 years old as Historic
Deaths 1837 to 1957 it seems the GRO are classing births over 161 years old as Historic but this is due to the Dove Project (Digitisation of Vital Events) only digitised death records to 1957

Marriages were not digitised under the Dove project and are therefore not offerred as PDF files.

I also note they now supply a Multilingual Standard Form as an option which I had not noticed before.

Methinks you have the wrong GRO.

Yes, I click on the message rather than the board so missed it was a question on the Ireland (Historical Counties) board.

Which years specifically were released in this update? I can't find a list of what was there previously.

I saw that, but I'm still not clear which years were added compared to what was there before. Apologies if I'm being dense, I may need it spelled out for me.

I was also trying to remember what was previously on the site to avoid duplicating earlier searches  :-\
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
