  10. WinREG - File/Fiche?

    I've noticed that the new version of WinREG has a field called "File/Fiche" for baptisms, information being "Fiche or Film number" (which makes me wonder whether it should be called Film/ Fiche, but that's not my question.)

  14. Lightbulb Free Reg search

    I've just tried to do a search on FreeReg, and find that Montgomeryshire is no longer listed, and that there are no place names listed at all. I've already done successful searches in that county, so it should be there. Is this something to do with the latest update to records?
