GB data update

I have just done a major data update to the GB file. I have added another 958 records to the site this involved a lot of de-duplication effort too. There were nearly 1000 duplicate records to find. I know that there are some more in the dataset BUT combining life event records when you don’t have more detailed information is challenging. I would rather keep the duplicates than make a mistake and combine the wrong records.

I have also played with an on-line mapping programme and mapped the 880 births from FreeBMD onto a map.

The full zoomable map is visible here.
