  9. Birmingham, Warwickshire in the 1860s

    Am interested to find out about the old boundaries of Warwickshire. I believe they were changed and Birmingham is now in what is known as the West Midlands area. Am I right? Is the West Midlands a county? I have an ancestor who was born there and baptized at St Philips Cathedral.
