The LancashireBMD project provides online indexes to birth, marriage and deaths recorded in the original registers held by the several Register Offices in the pre-1974 county of Lancashire. The indexes are made freely available at [link to this URL]

Society members are active in indexing both on-site at a number of Register Offices and as home-workers typing up scanned copies of the indexes made contemporaneously with the registers.

Society volunteers are currently adding mothers' maiden names to existing birth indexes. Click Here [opens extension to page] for a list of volunteers working on the latter project.


Transcriber Schedule

This page is posted for the benefit of members involved in the transcription of birth index data at Central Library and at Manchester Register Office, in connection with the LancashireBMD indexing project.

The table below shows the names of transcribers currently booked against each available time-slot at Central Library and at Lloyd Street. Transcribers should please note that the changeover time from morning to afternoon slots is a strict 1pm unless specifically agreed otherwise between a morning and afternoon transcriber. Transcribers are also at liberty to exchange slots on a temporary or permanent basis by agreement but if the change will extend to more than one week, please advise the Project Manager.
