As a result of the BBC TV programmes, 'Who do you think you are' there is
an amazing increase in family history research in the UK.
Apparently because of the increased demand for BMD certificates, there is a
notice on the web site to say that there will be a delay in dealing with
enquiries as a direct result of the programme.
The National Archives have put a page on their web site to explain some of
the resources that were used by the 'celebrities' who were researching their
families - for example in one episode Health Records were searched, in
another Railway records were used another used Coroner's Inquest
This page will explain what records are available and where to find them.
For those of you who were not able to see the series, the last programme
listed on the page, featuring Vic Reeves (not his real name) had connections
to Suffolk and used the resources of the Suffolk Record Office in Bury St
Other information on the page is generally helpful and has links to yet more
Apologies if you receive this more than once as I am copying to three
