Search birth brief index
On joining the Society members are given a birth brief form on which they can record all of their ancestors back to their great-great-grandparents. This index contains all of the surnames (around 28,000) that occur on the birth brief forms received prior to 2007. Details of ones received after that date can be found in SoG Data Online. Variations have been listed separately, as have names that appear in both hyphenated and non-hyphenated form.
The birth briefs themselves can be consulted in the Upper Library, along with an index showing the precise volume and page number on which the entry occurs.
