Transcribing for FreeBMD

This week I've volunteered to transcribe for FreeBMD. FreeBMD is an ongoing project aiming to transcribe the Civil Registration index of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales, and to provide free Internet access to the transcribed records.

I've found FreeBMD very useful in the past - especially for finding other halves of marriages and for births where the maiden name of the mother is part of the index.

I've downloaded all the relevant software and just uploaded my first page. Already I'm starting to get quicker while remaining accurate - hopefully!!

So far so good - I'll update on any interesting names that I find along the way.
