- Mother’s Maiden Name (births after 1911), Spouses Surname (Marriage), Age at Death / Date of Birth
- Registration District
The thing I have to do next (well after transferring my family file that is) is double check each entry against the images of the GRO register to ensure the transcriptions are correct. I will be using Ancestry to do this, but you are able to view images from FreeBMD, I will also check that it includes them all (not a quick task!).
I am going to use the Births extraction to create a “Master Spreadsheet”. Each person will be given an ID number (as mentioned above) and transferred to my database. I realise that I will have the data duplicated, but there is a method in my madness…..more to be revealed soon. This will be used to track the individual through the different records in the future.
For SCRACE births there are 729 individuals.
For SCRACE marriages there are 370 individuals.
For SCRACE deaths there are 390 individuals.
I’ve decided against extracting the SCRASE entries for the moment as the numbers are larger and I don’t want to spend all my time double-checking GRO details at the moment.
The plan is that after I’ve identified all the individuals from the GRO index I will then look for them in the census after they were born. This will enable me to build up some trees.
Until next time…..
