    2. Lynne
    3. Free until May 6 (sorry for the short notice, but I just discovered this), "English Parish Records: More than Hatch, Match and Dispatch" at <https://familytreewebinars.com/download.php?webinar_id=878> "Most people are familiar with the baptism, marriage and burial records found in parish records but there are many other wonderful parish records that can help in genealogical research. These include Vestry minutes, Churchwarden Accounts, settlement certificates, examinations and removal orders, Parish poor rates and relief distribution, Parish apprenticeships, parish payments for work done within the parish, parish assisted emigration and more." Hope this is useful. Lynne

    1. [ENG-DUR-SUNDERLAND] ADMIN: why your messages might not reach the list
    2. Lynne
    3. Hello all Some of us have had problems posting to the list. The problem might be due to email being sent in HTML, Rich Text, or MIME rather than in Plain Text. Before we were switched to the new list software, the mail servers would endeavour to strip out any HTML from a list message and send the plain text on to subscribers. When the HTML could not be stripped out, messages were held in an administrative folder for review. It seems that is no longer happening. When you post to the list, please be sure to do so only in plain text to ensure that your message is distributed to fellow subscribers. If you're not sure how to send plain text email, here are a few links with instructions that might help: * Outlook <https://www.lifewire.com/outlook-plain-text-message-1165895> * Gmail <https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-send-a-message-in-plain-text-from-gmail-1171963> * IncrediMail <http://help.incredimail.com/english/help/im/plaintext.html> If your email program is not one of these three, search the web for "how to send email in plain text" and you'll find the answer for a variety of email programs.

    3. Thanks for the update Lynne However the big question is - Will they add to these records in the future or will we be stuck with the same set of dates? It would be great if they started adding to them.

"Change in Fees "From 16th February 2019 GRO have increased the price of certificates and made changes to delivery options. Extra charges will apply if you do not order certificates online or include a GRO index reference (where available). "Multilingual Standard Forms: These are now available with applications for certificates (or separately with a certificate of no impediment) if needed for use in EU countries.

    1. [ENG-DUR-SUNDERLAND] GRO certificate costs to increase in February
    2. Lynne
    3. First announced by Peter Calver in his LostCousins newsletter and now written about by UKBMD, a variety of family history societies, and Who Do You Think You Are Magazine, certificate costs will increase 16 February 2019. From Who Do You Think You Are magazine, "Increased charges for this service, which will come into force on 16 February 2019, have now been published in Statutory Instrument No 1268, 'Registration of births, deaths & marriages, etc., England and Wales', available on the UK government's legislation website. "The cost of print certificates will increase from £9.25 to £11, and from £23.40 to £35 for the priority service, which allows delivery on the next working day. The same costs will apply if researchers order the certificate from their local register office. "In October 2017 the GRO introduced a new pilot scheme allowing researchers to order PDF copies of digitised birth and death records for £6 each. Following an estimated 79,600 PDF orders in three months, the scheme was extended indefinitely. "The cost of PDF records will now increase to £7, with priority deliveries available at £45. "If researchers make an application to the GRO for a certificate copy without knowing the index reference, there will be an additional non-refundable fee of £3 in exchange for GRO staff carrying out a search of the index. Currently, this service is free. "There will also be a fee of £3.50 where the GRO cannot fulfil an order because the staff cannot locate the record with the information provided. "The increased fees are the first pricing changes at the GRO since 2010."

    1. [ENG-DUR-SUNDERLAND] National Archives - Change in fees
    2. Lynne
    3. From <http://livelb.nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/news/changes-to-our-fees/> - "From 1 February 2019, there will be changes to some of the fees we charge. "Archive boxes on repository shelvesAs a government department providing a public service, we are able to charge for some statutory services (as defined by the Public Records Act ) on a cost recovery basis. The Fees Order, which regulates our fees, has been refreshed from the last calculation which came into effect 1 April 2017. We are maintaining the standard approach in line with the HM Treasury publication, Managing Public Money, to set charges at a level that will recover full costs, ensuring that The National Archives neither profits at the expense of consumers nor makes a loss for taxpayers to subsidise. "There are both price increases and decreases, for example a digital copy up to A3 size goes up by 10p to £1.20. Currently, our research service cost £23.35 per 15 minutes, this will go up by £1.00 however, the charge for a copy of a naturalisation certificate will go down by 25p to £27.15. "As there is no legal requirement for The National Archives to digitise physical public records these services are by definition discretionary. We have therefore removed the following digital surrogate related lines: • The creation of digital surrogates funded by others (for a commercial return, or to widen access) • Reprographic charges (Production and Estimation) • Image Library (Serviced Copies – Colour Photograph) • Digital Downloads • Conservation for Digitisation "In addition to, but separate from, the Fees Order changes, we are introducing a fee for the provision of letters of no evidence of naturalisation, in the same way that we charge for certified copies of naturalisation certificates. They will incur a fee of £27.15 which is regulated to be the cost recovery price (i.e. the cost to The National Archives doing the work). "A full list of fees can be found here <www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/record-copying-prices-february-2019.pdf>" Don't shoot the messenger! Lynne
