The Reading branch of Berkshire Family History Society will be continuing our 2019 monthly meetings on Thursday 28th November, when Antony Marr will give a talk entitled Birth and Death - deciphering those certificates.
Why can the same birth be registered more than once and in different years? Why does a death registration involve three different certificates? This talk will look at the complex rules that govern the creation of these important documents, dispel a few myths, and help you understand how to decipher them to help in unlocking those complex research problems.
Antony is a professional genealogist and member of the Council of AGRA (Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives). After retiring from a 30-year police career, he also worked as a Deputy Registrar of birth, deaths and marriages, leading to a special interest in the records of civil registration.

We meet at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, 280 Meadway, Tilehurst RG30 4PE. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.45pm start. All are welcome - free entry, but donations gratefully received. We hope to see you there. Keep an eye on the Society website for events at other branches and in our Centre for Heritage and Family History,, or pop into the Centre for Heritage and Family History, 2nd Floor, Reading Central Library, Abbey Square, Reading RG1 3BQ
