Completion of BMD Transcription Project

TheGenealogist has now completed transcribing birth, marriage and death records for England and Wales giving a third of a billion fully searchable records. These are also linked into their unique ‘SmartSearch’ facility taking you through a person’s life events.

This release marks the completion of a hugely successful project for TheGenealogist, now providing family historians with fully transcribed BMD records dating back to the start of civil registration in 1837.

What makes this unique is the linked in ‘SmartSearch’ feature, which makes life even easier for the family historian.

Mark Bayley, Head of Online Content, explains: “The transcriptions allow us to harness the full power of ‘SmartSearch’ and allow our users to swiftly jump from one record to the next. It’s now possible to move through your ancestral line with unparalleled speed. No other site makes searching for your ancestors so straightforward.”
