Product Description

This newly updated version of this incredibly popular index now contains 18 milllion entries. That is 5 million more than edition 2.There are many more parishes registers covered for England and Wales from 1538 onwards. It is still not a complete index to all burials, but yet again represents an enormous effort by Family History Societies and Groups to make available a large amount of information easily searchable in your own home. The National Burial Index, known as the NBI, is quality British data at an affordable price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Check County and Parish 23 Feb 2012
By Max
Before Buying This Disc I Urge You To Check Which Counties and Parishes are Included as I Was Totally Disappointed To Discover The Counties I Needed (West Sussex and Hampshire) are Hardly covered At All. Otherwise, a Very Easy Disc To Use and Simple Search Engine Which Is Fairly Rapid

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent update to NBI 2nd Edition 18 Dec 2011
The second edition was good, but it was a nuisance having to set up using three discs. This version uses just one disc and is very easy to set up with clear written instructions.

The software is very easy to use and the search engine very efficient, narrowing info down to individual parish churches in different counties in England and Wales.

I thought I'd found most of the info I'd required on version 2, but I was very pleasantly surprised and am still adding data to my family tree. For the amount of info that you get it is excellent value, even if some areas aren't covered in detail. eg if you had relatives in Yorkshire, the Midlands, Suffolk, Lincolnshire and Berkshire, you'll probably find a lot of info (more details on the Federation of Family History Societies website)

Devon, Hampshire, Lancashire, Norfolk and North Wales don't have as many entries - hopefully these areas will be included on version 4!

In spite of these gaps, I would still recommend this software very highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars NBI 11 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
Excellent and more. Easy to use with its own viewer; including conditions such as date range, variant names and optional place and county. I had one issue with a name that wouldn't load in, I used the help facility and was emailed back within 24 hours with the answer, problem solved. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 21 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
It seems to take quite a while to "get going" but is easy enough to follow. This type of product is very hit and miss as regards finding the entries you want and you have to accept that when you buy it.
