A major announcement from FindMyPast today, in conjunction with the National Archives they will be digitising the 1939 Identity Card Register.

The 1939 register was taken on 29 September 1939 by the British Government and recorded personal details of individuals in order to issue identity cards and ration books. It later formed the basis of the National Health Service’s records.

The records contain the address, full name, date of birth, sex, marital status and occupation of individuals, as well as changes of name. Although the Register is literally within living memory for many people, information about living individuals will be kept closed for 100 years from their year of birth, or until proof of death has been authenticated.

Currently this database is only available by contacting the National Health Service Information Centre and paying a fee of £42 per search.

Have been to the presentation of Past Lives Project at Ironbridge Gorge Museum this evening, with a showing of an excerpt of a previous project with live music to accompany the film.

The Past Lives Project is about creating art, film, music & performance from archives. The project is looking for old amateur cine film which the project would like your to share with them.

They are looking for cine film of any length of people in Ironbridge & wider Telford area at work, rest & play. It maybe a family day out or a celebration, a local festival or fete or just an ordinary moment in time in your home. The footage can be of any time period.

So time to get up your loft, you parents or grandparents attic and dig out those old cine films and get them preserved in the archives. If seeing your parents on mothers day, ask if they have any film taken in the area. 

Time to get some of the memories of Ironbridge and the wider Telford preserved for ever.

If you have any film you want to share the contact info@pastlivesproject.com

There is a Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/PastLivesProject

Professional Family History Researcher based in Shropshire for all you Family Tree needs
Introduction
Family Heritage Search provides an affordable and personal Family History Research Service.

If you are looking to discover your family's past then Family Heritage Search can help you trace your roots, we will search for your ancestors via:

Birth, Marriage & Death Indexes
Census records
Parish Registers/Records
Military Records
Local & National Archives
Immigration and Emigration Records
Overseas records
 and many other sources both online and offline

I will apply for Birth, Marriage & Death Certificates from the General Registry Office (GRO) to help identify your ancestors.

For those who have been undertaking their own research and have come to a stop or hit a brick wall, I will review what you have found to date, suggest sources that could be searched and undertake that research on your behalf.

You may live a long way a way from the archives, I can search those archives on your behalf and report back on my findings.

I also provide a consultation service  for people want to research their family history themselves, but they don't know how to start or are confused by the information out there.

I can arrange to have a Family Tree printed detailing your ancestors, which can be hung on the wall (assuming you have a big enough wall!!)

Before any commitment I provide a 1 hours free consultation, please call or e-mail to make the necessary arrangements. 

How much will it cost?

Rates for hourly work are set at an affordable and  competitive £17 per hour,  I would usually recommend an initial purchase of 5 hours work at the outset, but if your require as little as an hour that can be accommodated as well. 

For straightforward lookup requests are charged @ £10 per hour.

If you prefer to pay a fixed price, rather than by the hour, then you can choose from one of Family Heritage Search’s packages.
 
Packages available from £150 - £550 (more details available on website)

Gift Vouchers available from £50 upwards
