UKBDM and Unlock the past

UKBMD provides links to websites that provide information on UK parish registers, births, deaths, marriages, censuses and other records. The links are easily located by county.

"All the Local BMD web sites are run by local volunteers from the various local family history societies.  Show you support for these groups by joining the local family history society for your area"

Unlock the past  promotes Australian & New Zealand history, genealogy and heritage.  I recently attended the 3rd Unlock the Past History & Genealogy Cruise, which was terrific and resulted in many tips for additional research.
Amongst other things, the Unlock the past website lists upcoming Genealogy and Family History events in Australia and publish a range of easy to read genealogy guide books, which I have found very useful.

  1. Think you have to pay to use a lot of those websites. I caught one of them taking photos at an exhibition we had. Was not impressed.

    1. I think you may be looking at the links on the right? Instead search by county records on the left and you will find that the majority are free websites by local historians who have transcribed records.
      What was the exhibition?
