MARRIAGES UPDATE

Last month the GRO (General Register Office) increased the fee for obtaining a copy marriage certificate from £7.00 to £9.25. I took the opportunity to order several certificates before the increase and have been working through all the Vicary marriages 1837 to 1912 . I estimate that I now have 80% recorded on actual trees with details of parents, spouses, etc.. Over time I hope to make that 100% but with the increased cost this will now take longer than ever.

Also last month I attended the annual conference of the Guild of One-Name Studies. There were several very interesting topics discussed including the possibility of uploading data files, such as births, marriages and deaths, onto my Guild web page so that you can view them. This is something I will be considering over the next few months. Meantime please feel free to contact me by email if you have any Vicary family history queries.
