I got sent this on a mailing list. I’ve signed the petition, if we all do that then we will make our views felt.
I have managed to get 10 Downing Street to allow an e-petition looking for support to have open access to the registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths from 1837 to 1908. This one act would enable all family historians and genealogists to find the right family certificate without having to purchase a copy certificate which turns out to be incorrect.
I hope you can support me in this as I feel it will make family history just that little bit easier, after all these registrations are over 100 years old.
