Fresh Fields.  Thank you for your reply.  Haven't tried this yet.  Hopefully I will be able to manage the search.

It's a simple process.

I will attach some screen captures to show the steps I took in this example prepared for you.
In the case of historic NZ B. D. & M. records, when you do a search online, you are only offered a year of entry, and a registration number. When you see an interesting result, you can limit your search to that year, then drill down through a number of steps.

I start with June that year, to see if registered in first or last half, I then try March, or September, depending upon the first result, then reduce the size [gap] of the steps, until I know the date the entry becomes active.

Remember occasionaly the registration is retrospective, so the registration year may not be the year of birth.

Exercise example attached.

Happy hunting.

Fresh Fields,  Thank you for your help with drilling down.  Hectic life at present so I haven't had a chance to try it but I have kept a copy close by for my research. Thank you for taking the trouble to explain. Much appreciated.

Hi iwccc

This is the BALDWIN birth I'd mention in an earlier post here :

NSW Birth Index

4257 / 1919
BALDWIN - Irene M.
Parents :  Thomas and Ivy
Registration District :   Waratah


Just looked back at my notes and had already worked out the date as being -  17 December 1919 - but, for some unknown reason, had omitted to add it to the post.
So that will save you some time.   ;)
