Welcome to the Bath BMD web site, part of the Local BMD Project group of Family History and Genealogy web sites.

The Register Offices in the county of Bath, England, hold the original records of births, marriages and deaths back to the start of civil registration in 1837.

Independent volunteers, have collaborated with the local Registration Service to make the indexes to these records freely searchable via the Internet.

The database covers Bath and North East Somerset births, marriages and deaths for the years 1837 to 2007. (Marriages will continue to be added as registers are completed.)

The menus at the top give access to all the sections of this web site. To visit all the other web sites which are placing original registrars' indexes on-line click on the UKBMD logo below. UKBMD also has a Multi-Region Search feature which can be used to search several BMD sites in one go if you are not sure of the area that your ancestors were from.

If you have any comments or queries regarding this web-site, or wish to contact us, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Software update: The Advanced Search feature has been updated to include a Gaelic Prefix option with the aim of taking into account names that have been anglicised and possibly lost their O' or Mc', etc., prefixes over time, or indexed without an apostrophe, e.g. as ONEIL rather than O'NEIL. See the Hints and Tips page for details.

Free Online Tutorials on how to get the best from these Local BMD websites can be found on the UKBMD website's Tutorials page.
