Local BMD Project Over the last few years family historians in a growing number of counties and regions within the country have been working with their local Register Office staff to create on-line indexes. Each has been managed separately and an indication of the success of the project can be seen by the fact that there are now over 40 million records on-line under the Local BMD banner. The aim now is to encourage family historians in the rest of the country to join this project and begin working with their local register offices to put original birth, marriage and death indexes on-line. Below you will find : The start of UKBMD website and the Local BMD Project. In 1837 registration of births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales began, however this did not become compulsory until 1875 with the Births and Deaths Registration Act. Since 2000 a growing number of Family History Societies have been working with their local Register Offices to place indexes to births, marriages and deaths on-line.
