Could I add to the questions please
A book I glanced at said the IGI was just Births and Deaths. Is that true?
How does IGI relate to FreeBMD? More/Less?
(I have read here the issue re Catholic records)
How does NBI relate to FreeBMD?
Are IGI and other databases restricted to 100 years?
Family Tree mag had a a letter complaining that IGI had picked up the
writers current tree and added data to IGI such as his parents which were
within 100 years and that LDS had promised to remove the data.
Is the 100 years rule is true then Jill's question is very to the point -
when do 'new' records get added?
Many Thanks ...Ron in Sydney
