They are very good, but they are not all available . My husbands family are mainly from Aston ,and its a bit hit and miss ,from a family of ten children i got 1 baptism ,and 1 marriage . Very disappointed with Handsworth Marriages , got my uncles first wife's marriage ,but when i looked for my fathers first marriage his was not there . :roll:
It's easy to stand with the crowd . It takes courage to stand alone

I've found quite a few on Ken's side, but as DT says, a bit hit and miss. Still very very pleased though.

I'm really happy - my West Bromwich Wearing ancestors had a tradition of marrying in Birmingham, weird when they lived in West Bromwich, and there doesn't seem to be any funny business going on!
Also I noticed that two sets of Jeavons rellies tended to have their kids baptised on the same day, making a family event of it.
I also solved the question of Martha's maiden name - she married a Joseph Smith, not quite sure if it doesn't make things more difficult though - she turns out to be a Jones!
So all in all found loads of records I wasn't betting on, but some of the ones I thought I'd find weren't there.
And of course, if they signed, you can see their own hand writing!!

Logic merely enables one to be wrong with authority.
