I would expect a book with this title to include items like finding Possible Spouses - by finding all entries on a given page of the marriage index one can narrow the spouse down initially down to 2 and if one knows the Christian name one frequently has it down to 1. I believe there is also a method by which the church as distinct from the registration district can be determined. It was for features like these which were behind my purchase - hence my disappointment.

Solution - a second edition with these additions - with a complimentary copy to me!

I am researching the family history and this has helped me to find the best places for information and how to interpret dates and other info which is not always as it seems as historic record keeping is not always exact. It is actually easy to read and interesting as well. A good reference book.

A very informative book which provides a comprehensive coverage of the this important topic from a UK perspective starting from early parish registers (mostly Church of England, but other denominations are also discussed in some detail) through to the present day (post 1837) civil registration. It also covered events and records that took place overseas due to military service and / or service in India.

I enjoyed reading it and thoroughly recommend it.

There are a few illustrations of certificates and parish register which probably come out well on the printed version, but are just too small on the kindle version (I bought the kindle version).

A good basic guide to using BMD records in tracing your family tree. Worth buying even if you are an experienced researcher.
