GRO index of births
Posted by David MUrrian on 30/7/2020, 7:16 pm
A general query to to clear up some of my confusion. I have been following an ancestral line but decided to see if I could follow decendants (to see if it led to modern day family members), by checking the GRO birth index. At one point, I put in the surname of the parents and the mothers maiden name. I wanted to check the years 1918 - 1939 but was surprised to find the drop down bar for the years went to 1919 and the next one was 1984, and could apparently not enter manually a year between these 2 years.
Was this just a "one off" or is it not possible to generally search for births between 1919 and 1984?
