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 , 16,213,497 Baptisms and 11,399,759 Burials5,194,302 Marriages. The last update started on Mon 20 Jul 2015 and was completed on Mon 20 Jul 2015.

On Thu 30 Jul 2015 FreeREG users did 13,586 searches. (Details)
