There are now two different databases for searching for ancestral genealogical records.

The Certificate Database is a listing of birth, marriage, and death certificates which have been painstakingly transcribed by volunteers into a database. These records can be searched by individual name.

The Personal Database has been (and continues to be) added by individuals in the world recording their own branches of their family tree. These records are searched by surname families. THIS DATABASE IS PRESENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND SHOULD BE BACK UP WITHIN A FEW DAYS (hopefully!)
