    Hi,

    I have a couple of simple queries about the info on the NBI and I'm hoping someone on here has one and can explain to me.

    1) Does the NBI cover all counties?

    2) Is there a table/index showing what parishes and years are covered?

    Now that I've made a slight headway in Yorkshire and a good headway in Lincolnshire (I hope) I'm finding it difficult to ascertain whether possible ancestors did or did not die, so it looks as though I might have to spend (whimpers) on the NBI disk/s. If the parishes and coverage of years are not indicated, I'm not sure if it would help me, decisions, decisions. :nailbiting: :rolleyes: :D

    Have a look here for coverage:

    http://www. ffhs.org.uk/burials/nbi-coverage.php

    It's the 3rd edition and as far as I can find out the latest edition.

    If you have ancestors more than a couple of generations back who haven't died yet, please share. :angel: Sorry, I guess I'm wearing my "smarty pants" today. :oops:

    The 3rd edition is the latest available. Bought a copy 2 year ago, so as it is paid for and is mine, I guess I can do look ups if wanted.

    First, have a read of the copyright notices on any associated paperwork.

    You may find that you are able to use the information that you have in order to provide answers to queries as long as it is in your own words and not a copy/paste. However, to offer to undertake look-ups on any data disk/subscription website may infringe the owner's copyright.

    Is it certain that we'd find the burial of past Family members as in late 1880s? I've never found one of my Gt.G'Mothers in Southwark bbut found a 2nd Gt.G'Aunt's burial in Nunhead in 1854.

    From reading, it seems that all previous entries are included in the 3rd edition. Is that correct? Lot of money otherwise if no guarantees.

    Picky, picky :D

    What I meant was if the person #1 died within three years of baptism his parents could be ancestors, possibly seeing #1's parents being the people who moved to Yorkshire and had a son (#2) with the same first name and father's name as #1 and therefore being the parents of Elisabeth Rennold who married Oswald Sturdy. However if person #1 didn't die in the specified time but lived on, he (#1) and his family are not ancestors.

    Got that? :D

    What I attempted to do in my previous post was keep it short because my request was simply about the NBI, why I wanted it didn't really matter at that stage. :D

    I'll come back to this with a more lucid explanation when I have answers to a couple of questions.

    Don't worry I nearly lost the thread myself typing it but one day hopefully I will make it clearer. It all comes down to people not being where I want them, when I want them and apparently not dying as and when I want, some people are most inconsiderate. :)

    Now I'm worried because I did understand your post.:nailbiting:

    Looking at areas covered in NBI those living in Southwark & nearby must still be laying about somewhere because I couldn't see that area included.

    The CD came with an 8 page information booklet and a bit of info on the rear of the cd case, but after having a good read, nowhere is it mentioned about only using for personal research or own use.

    I had found her burial along with her Husband-same day- "London, England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-1980" via Ancestry records thanks & even taken a virtual stroll through that cemetery. On same day as my birth 90 yrs later, so easy to remember.
    It's the others in Southwark/Bermondsey areas that I can't find anywhere. :(

    Hmmm this is what they say on their info page
    "
    Public Access Usage
    If a facility such as a library or record office wants to make NBI available for use by the general public, it is necessary to obtain a Public Access Licence.

    FFHS Member Societies may use NBI within their research or library premises and for demonstration purposes without a Public Access Licence.

    Licence Agreement
    Some clauses from the NBI licence agreement which may be of interest to the user:




      • You may use the software and data on only one computer
      • You may print, photocopy or download portions of data for private research and study only. The data may be used and copied in this manner for relations and friends free of charge for non-commercial purposes.
      • You may not make any full copies of the software or data.
      • You may not publish or sell any portion of the software and data, in printed, electronic, or any other format, without prior written consent of the Licensors.
      • You may not loan, rent, sublicense, or transfer the software or data except to give this entire package to another party, in which case you may not keep any copies of the software or data for your own use.
    So, I reckon look-ups are not an option unless the site members on here count as friends. Dodgy I think but Daft Bat can advise. Maybe by Pm only. Also this database is available on FMP so..........

    Sounds good to me but then perhaps I'm biased. ;) :D
