FreeREG logo FreeREG stands for Free REGisters.

Our objective is to provide free Internet searches of baptism, marriage, and burial records, that have been transcribed from parish and non-conformist registers of the U.K. FreeREG is a companion project to FreeBMD (a database of the GRO birth, marriage and death indexes from 1837) and FreeCEN (a database of census information).

We are in need of volunteers willing to transcribe registers, to make their existing transcriptions available on FreeREG or undertake one of the many supporting tasks. (Follow the link to How to Volunteer for information on how to participate.)

The FreeREG database contains , 16,097,373 Baptisms5,157,024 Marriages and 11,307,503 Burials. The last update started on Wed 24 Jun 2015 and was completed on Wed 24 Jun 2015.

On Mon 6 Jul 2015 FreeREG users did 15,654 searches. (Details)

IMPORTANT: We are pleased to announce that a new version of this website is ready for you to search at FreeREG2 and it is using the same set of records as here. You will find that it has some new search options and it works slightly differently, so do not expect exactly the same search result, and you may even find something new.
