I did look through the site. It states "BMD Certificates are subject to copyright we are not allowed to hold or supply images of the certificates. However, as all the certificates have been bought, the owner can share the information on them without being in breach of the law." I wouldn't mind sharing but wondered if this statement is true, legally. I am not familiar with copyright laws.

I wrote the LDS before about transcribing records from a microfilm I had but was told to contact another department. I wrote that department and they said that they didn't own them either and would have to contact the owner of the record. I never got another response. I'll have to write them again.

Subject: [GLA] re BMD share information site

Hello, I have just come across the website and thought what a brilliant
idea it is. It asks people to put any unwanted BMD certificate information
on to the site. It is fairly new so not a lot on there at the moment but it
could be a really useful tool for the future. I thought some of you may be
interested. The site address is Best wishes to you all
