Buying Hertfordshire Birth, Marriages and Death Certificates.

I have only just realized that in 2011 the Hertfordshire County Council set up an office to archive the birth, marriage and death civil registration certificate registers in St Albans, which had previously been held in the local registrar offices. They can now be ordered online see How can I get a copy certificate

It should be realized that in the past the local civil registration registers are the original copy and hence will avoid the copying errors that can occur on the General Registrar Offices copies (see A Comedy of Errors). 

In updating the information on the web site I have also carried out some tidying up of pages on the Family Events section - for instance by indicating that some of the pages relating to familysearch and the IGI are now of historic interest only because of recent online changes.
