The Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS) plans to close its existing website at FamilyHistoryOnline and distribute its members’ data in association with The Society of Genealogists is an educational charity the purpose of which is to “promote, encourage and foster the study, science and knowledge of genealogy". The Society’s premises in Central London house the largest family history research library in the UK. The Society of Genealogists’ Library is open to members and paying non-members.The NBI gives universal access to the content of parish burial records held by local repositories and family history societies who have participated in the project, and has opened up these crucial resources to a far wider audience of genealogists.

The project of creating the National Burial Index began in 1994 and was first published in 2001, containing 5.4 million records. A second edition followed in 2004 containing over 13 million names.

Whilst not all of the 13 million records from the second edition are available here, millions of them are, alongside many thousands which do not appear on the CD.

Family history societies and individual transcribers chose the parishes and time intervals they transcribed. While most began with the period 1813 to 1850, there are a significant amount of data available either side of these dates.

A partnership between General Register Office for Scotland, the National Archives of Scotland and the Court of the Lord Lyon enabled by Scotland Online.
