Update Birth Index
« on: Saturday 20 February 21 13:53 GMT (UK) »
I have recently looked up two births in the birth index for Berkshire but no luck, one is for 2006 the other 2007. Is there a reason why Ancestry.com hasn't updated this for quite some time?

Do you mean the dataset described as "England and Wales, Birth, Marriage and Death Indexes, 1837-2005"

?

Are they also absent from "England & Wales, Civil Registration Birth Index, 1916-2007"?

Just had a look on GRO as you suggested Rosie & they are both on there, thank you  :) I wish Ancestry would keep up to date though.
