The growing interest in family history over the last few years has been remarkable. With a new series of the popular BBC programme "Who do you think you think you are?" due to start in the New Year, family history and genealogy research is becoming easier thanks to the internet. Leading the way in online genealogy is the website www.familyrelatives.org which has begun to revolutionise Family History research by making the process of locating Birth, Marriage and Death records (BMD) for England and Wales much easier, more accurate, cheaper and without the need to visit the Family Records Centre in Central London.
Familyrelatives.org has launched the complete records for the period 1837, the year of Queen Victoria’s coronation and the year Civil Registration began, to 2003. It is the first website to make available 300 million records searchable by surname and forename with 150 million of those records being fully searchable on any criteria from spouse name, to age at death, to mother’s maiden name.
This ease of use and pinpointing of family relatives has created much excitement in the Family History community as no other website allows the searching of marriages by using a marriage match or booster marriage facility.
Familyrelatives.org search capabilities allow family history enthusiasts to find an ancestor quickly and identify the exact record needed. Searches for 1866-1920 and 1984 to 2003 can be made by forename, surname, mother’s maiden name, spouse’s maiden name, approximate age at death (+/- 5 years), year of event, year range, geographical area as well as official registry districts.
