Please bear with me if this is old news, but I've just joined here (from another well known site) and this is my first post!

I can now decipher most of the churches from the Durham County Council on-line registrar certificates. It saves a huge amount of time when at the records office. If anybody wants any doing, let me know!

Also - Hi to all the people with research interests in Durham. If I can help, I will.

Look forward to speaking to you all

Isabel,

There was a split in the Durham Register Offices at some stage and both Sunderland and Gateshead held their own records.

Sadly, my "list" doesn't cover Gateshead.

However, I've done a bit of digging and I THINK the church may be St Thomas in Collierley, other than that I'm not much help - sorry.

All the best

Tony

Hi, how do you get hold of these on-line registrat certificates? Is this available upon request of a BMD marriage reference like what is given in freebmd? Do you have to mail Durham CC with this info and/or names of the parties involved? Do you have an email address to get the registrat certs?

Sorry to appear thick, but I need more help here.

Thanks, rihuggett.

Here is the link for getting certificates online from the General Register Office - only for registrations from 1837 onwards, of course.

http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/

You will need the reference number - such as:
Gateshead vol 10a page 876
and you will need to quote the year and the quarter - MARCH is for Jan/Feb/March; JUNE is for April/May/June; SEPTEMBER is July/August/September; DECEMBER is October/November/December.
You will also need the name of the person on the certificate.

You can pay online using a credit card.

I use this service a lot and it is excellent.

Best wishes,
Pat

Hi,

If your marriage is in Co Durham, this link will help:

http://www.durham.gov.uk/gro/newgro.nsf/search?open&C0688242190319032006$

Once you find the marriage, there is an on-line application form and on there is a code. From that you can identify which church the marriage took place at.

Hi Tony
Can you tell me where these two marriages would have been

DCCE27/2 -209 - Durham Central 1854

DCREG 36-114 - DURHAM CENTRAL 1880

Hi

DCCE27 is St Lawrence Pittington and the marriage is recorded in Index No 2, entry number 209. If you would like a photograph of the church send me a private message with your e-mail address.

Sorry, I can't give much detail on the other as it is a registry office - which one I'm not sure but I think that is Durham.

Does that help?

Regards

Tony

Hello Tony,

Just come across your thread and wondered how you figured out DCC code for their Churches. It would be brilliant if you could give us a few pointers and as you say would save hours when you get to the Records Office.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Happy hunting
