The Story

FreeBMD provides free access to transcriptions of the civil registrations of births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales. We want to expand that to the whole of the UK, and military and consular registrations. We have over 288 million records already transcribed - up to 1983. Can you help us continue towards the present, and expand into other civil registrations of the British Isles? We're currently developing a new version of FreeBMD, which began its build early in 2019. We'd like to set up a 'boot camp' for those approaching or in retirement, training them in Ruby and Refinery CMS, so they can contribute to the development and maintenance of this project. Donations will be used for this, or for other expenses, such as servers. We also need transcribers (freebmd.org.uk/Signup.html to find out more) and technical volunteers (see freeukgenealogy.org.uk/about/volunteer/tech-volunteering-opportunities to find out more).
