St Helens Townships Family History Group to get behind the scenes look at St Helens Register Office
9:24am Monday 9th September 2013 in News
ST HELENS Register office will be opening its doors for a group of local history buffs, for a behind the scenes glimpse into how they operate.
The all day event on Thursday, September 19, will give members of the St Helens Townships Family History Society a unique insight in how the office provides birth, death and marriage registration for the town.
For several years the society has been digitising these records at lancashirebmd.org.uk, which allows researchers to study local certificates.
Anne Atherton, St Helens Council’s Registration Services Manager will also be giving a short presentation on the day.
