Worcestershire lies almost entirely in the basin of the Severn, which receives the Stour; Teme, and Avon. The surface is a broad undulating plain, broken in the NE. by hills of moderate height, and in the SW. by the Malvern Hills, which reach an altitude of 1395 ft. The soil, chiefly clay and loam, is very fertile. Wheat is extensively grown, and there are numerous hop-gardens and orchards. Large quantities of cider and perry are made. There are several extensive and beautiful valleys (notably that of the Severn), with rich pastures, and great numbers of cattle and sheep are fattened. The strata consist for the most part of new red sandstone, lias, and oolite; other formations are visible in the Malvern Hills and some other districts. Coal and iron are found in the Dudley district, and the manufacture of iron and steel and of hardware is extensive. Carpets and rugs are made at Kidderminster, glass at Dudley and Stourbridge, gloves and porcelain at Worcester, and needles and fish-hooks at Redditch and Feckennam. Immense quantities of salt are obtained from the brine springs at Droitwich. The Birmingham and Worcester and other canals connect the Severn basin with those of the Trent and Mersey."<br />

  206. It is not always easy to locate your ancestors in the IGI using the search mechanisms provided at the above LDS site. Manually typing the batch numbers into the IGI search screen can be tedious. Hugh Wallis has made an exhaustive search of the likely ranges of batch numbers and created a database of those numbers and the source records that they apply to. A very powerful feature included is a hotlink from each batch number to the actual search engine provided at the Family Search site, including the ability to enter the surname you are looking for. This makes it very easy to search all the batches for a particular geographic location using just the last name you are searching for - something that is not possible directly from the LDS site without doing a lot of typing. This is <a href="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers.htm"> Hugh Wallis's site</a>.</blockquote>

Copies of certificates may be obtained from either the General Register Office (GRO), or from a Superintendent's Registrar's Office of the District at which the event was first registered. If the District no longer exists, this would be the Office to which its registers have been moved.
  215. <ul><li><b>Obtaining a certificate from a Superintendent Registrar's Office.</b>
  216. <ul><li>The original records of events, completed by the Registrar of the time, have always been retained by the District Registrar. In Worcestershire, these records were held in several different locations within the county, and in the past an application would be made to the Superintendent Registrar at one of these locations to search the local indexes he or she holds to the registers, and produce a certificated copy from the original record of the event. However in recent years all registers have been moved to the Worcester Register Office in County Hall, Worcester, and applications should now be made to that office.
  217. <p>The details required for such a request are name and surname, the event type (ie birth, marriage or death), and the year the event took place, and a search will be made of 5 years either side of that year, if an entry for that year isn't found. You can apply on-line <a href="http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/copycertificates">here</a>, but the helpful page about obtaining certificates is not currently available. The cost of a certificate obtained this way is £11.00 (including £1 postage - August 2015).</p>

  221. <p>There is an equivalent site for the <a href="http://www.westmidlandsbmd.org.uk/"> West Midlands BMD Indexes</a>, covering the registration districts of Stourbridge, Dudley, West Bromwich and Walsall.</p>
  222. <p>When necessary, details of the Local Register Office to contact are on one of the above sites, and a complete list of all districts may be found in Brett Langston's list of <a href="http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/reg/wor.html"> Worcestershire Registration Districts (1837-1974)</a>.</p>
  223. <ul><li><b>Obtaining a certifcate from the GRO</b>
  224. <ul><li>Certificates from the GRO are issued from copies of the original records; however there is considerable advantage in being able to search indexes to the whole country in one place, so many people prefer to do this, rather than risk a protracted search locally. The first step is to obtain a GRO reference to the event. You can then order certificates online via the Certificate Ordering Service of the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/order-copy-birth-death-marriage-certificate">General Register Office</a> website. From 6th April 2010, the cost of a certificate obtained this way is £9.25.
  225. <p>You can obtain a GRO reference in several ways:-</p>
  226. <ol><li>Searching microfilm or fiche at a Library or LDS Family History Centre.</li>
  227. <li><a href="https://FreeBMD.rootsweb.com/">FreeBMD</a> is an ongoing project to make the General Register Office (GRO) Indexes freely available online. More volunteers are needed and details of how you can help are available on-site.</li>

  230. </ol></li>
  231. </ul></li>
  232. <li><b>Obtaining a certificate for a recent event</b>
  233. <ul><li>The cost of a certificates issued at the time of registration of a current birth, death or marriage is £4.00 for each copy.</li>
  234. <li>After registration (for instance, the following day) the cost is £7.00, providing the register is still current (within 28 days of the last entry in the register)</li>
  235. <li>28 days after a registration book is complete, the register is deposited with the Superintendent Registrar of the district. At this point the cost becomes the same as any 'old' certificate obtained locally - £11.00 (including £1 postage - Aug 2015).
  236. <p>As Worcestershire is now one registration district, you should apply to Worcester Register Office at County Hall in Worcester.</p>

  275. <blockquote>This project aims to provide a "free-to-view" online searchable database of all the 19th century Worcestershire census returns. It is part of an initiative aimed at helping make high quality primary (or near-primary) records of relevance to UK genealogy conveniently and freely available online.
  276. <p>It is hoped to launch the project by transcribing the 1891 census returns for Kings Norton and then Dudley, using microfiche kindly loaned to the Project for this purpose by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). The Project makes use of specially developed software modules for data entry, checking, validation and database upload, under the global name of <a href="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~newbury/worcen.htm"> UK-CENS</a>. The project was scheduled to start in January 2001.</p>
  277. <p>Volunteers need a computer and access to a microfiche reader. Microfiche, software, instructions and lots of advice will be supplied by the organisers. There is also a dedicated mailing list to ask questions on and to receive advice about changes or upgrades to the software.</p>
  278. <p>There are two phases. In the first, the volunteer transcribes a census piece using whatever method suits them best, then uploads it to the county coordinator. In the second phase the transcriptions will be checked against the microfiche using a separate piece of software. The software for both phases is designed to make the tasks as easy as possible. Currently, the Devon and Cornwall 1891 returns are being transcribed and checked and it is hoped that transcriptions will start uploading to the online database in less than 12 months.</p>
  279. <p>Anyone who wishes to volunteer as a transcriber/checker, please contact the coordinator. This project is designed to help not just ourselves and others who are researching Worcestershire family history now, but to build a resource that will help future family historians. It is also designed to appeal to all online family historians. If you are online you can participate from wherever you are!</p>
