England & Wales Registration Certificate Tutorials: "This Web site aims to help people tracing their family history by explaining the usage of the different entries on birth, marriage, and death certificates throughout the history of birth registration in England and Wales. The entries on the certificate and their interpretation has to have changed over the past 150 years, and the interpretation of certificates without knowledge of the legal requirements and practices of the period when the registration was made can sometimes be difficult. The birth registrations of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Southern Ireland are different from those of England and Wales and are not covered here."
