1939 Register
« on: Monday 09 December 19 19:36 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
After the 100 year requirement is finished for locked persons how long does it take for them to be unlocked.  My Mom was born November 19, 1919.  I don't have access to genealogical sites but in browsing them she seems to still be blocked.
Thank you for any help on this,

The official time is 100 years and a day I believe. However the record will only be opened and shown online when the records are updated. Find My Past does this quite frequently but I think Ancestry only does it once a year.

Thank you groom.  I'm so anxious to find out what my Mom's occupation was in 1939 as it may explain some of the skills she had in later life.  She never talked about her early life and of course I never asked which is something I deeply regret now that she is gone.

When did your mother die? If it was some time ago her record may already be opened.

Since her birth would have been registered in Q4 1919 it may be worth looking on Findmypast in Q1 2020 to see if the records have been opened.

Possibly the lady died in Canada (in 2000?), so a death certificate/proof would have been needed to open it before 100 years?

groom, she died in January 2000.  I didn't apply to have her record opened as it was quite expensive.  Since it was only 81 years since her birth I didn't expect it to be opened.  I've just been waiting anxiously for this 100th year to come.

Chempat, you are correct.  She has been gone quite a while but as I mentioned to groom it was expensive to have the record opened.  I'm sure that will happen within this next year some time.
