    1. [ENG-SOM-NORTHCURRY] 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-SOM-NORTHCURRY] 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

    3. If you're near London - From <https://www.iwm.org.uk>: Until 29 October Daily | 5pm and 7pm As part of the IWM Short Film Festival 2018, we are delighted to be presenting free daily screenings of They Shall Not Grow Old, Peter Jackson’s artistic response to the First World War, co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and IWM. Archive footage has been transformed offering a new perspective on this 20th century conflict to a 21st century audience. Peter Jackson, best known for directing The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has created a new film using original footage from Imperial War Museums’ extensive archive, much of it previously unseen, alongside BBC and IWM interviews with servicemen who fought in the conflict. Footage has been colourised, converted to 3D and transformed with modern production techniques to present never before seen detail. Tickets for the 5pm and 7pm screenings will be released an hour before on a first- come-first-serve-basis to those in the queue, at 4pm and 6pm respectively, and must be acquired in person. Please note that spaces are limited. Arrive early to avoid disappointment. Suitable only for 15 years and over.

    1. [ENG-SOM-NORTHCURRY] Death on My Doorstep
    2. Lynne
    3. deathonmydoorstep - An interesting, albeit ghoulish site. "This is a website about the gruesome side of your local history. It’s what I call “Necro-History”. Every town, village and city has had multiple tales of murder, suicide, and accidents. I hope to feature and research these from the Victorian and Edwardian era. "Suicide’s that occur in well-known or religious buildings, murder in a theatre, ghost stories, tragic mining and train accidents, vicar running off with a barmaid, concealment of birth by servant’s, lynchings in the U.S.A. along with cannibals in the South Pacific. These are just some of the stories on the website, along with thousand’s more. It might look a bit amateurish, wonky and a bit cheap. There’s a good reason. I’ve got no money and I’m an amateur, with this being my first effort at a website.... "Please remember with this website that the Victorians had a morbid fascination with death and some of the stories will churn your stomach. (Murder, Suicide, Infanticide, Cannibalism and Lynchings)...." Who knows? Maybe one or two of your ancestors are mentioned. Am not posting the URL since we're still having problems with extended ProofPoint URLs, but Google will find it. Lynne
