Postems on FreeBMD

I thought today I would tell you about a little on-going project I have. It was pointed out to me by my good friend Judy Ramsey that if everyone put the details that they had on the birth, marriage and death certificates that they owned onto FreeBMD as a Postem note then it would be of great help to others. Imagine if even a 10th of genealogists with English & Wales ancestors did that then FreeBMD would go from a great resource to a magnificent one !!

On the recent Unlock The Past Genealogy Cruise I upgraded a Flip-Pal scanner from a want to a need and bought one. Amazing how many genealogy toys/books/certificates/subscriptions can be upgraded if you try hard enough!. Today I shall start to use the Flip-Pal to scan all my certificates and double check that I have entered the information from them onto FreeBMD Postems.

 

Postems on FreeBMD

Above is a screen-shot showing the small yellow envelope that appears next to a FreeBMD entry to show that someone has attached a note to that entry. You can find out how to attach a Postem, it’s very easy, at http://www.freebmd.org.uk/postems-help.html

So go on, put an hour aside and get entering those details from your certificates, someone, somewhere, sometime will thank you for it Postems on FreeBMD

  1. This is a great idea. I’ve spent the last couple of days adding postems to all the registrations of all the England & Wales birth and marriage certificates I have. Still have death certificates to do. Getting there slowly, adding a few at a time.
