We are in for a very busy period!
Ancestry has just released their index of England & Wales births for the period 1911-2005. This database is a searchable, digitized version of the indices of civil registrations in England and Wales, reported quarterly to the General Register Office (GRO) in London.
This index spans the years between 1916 and 2005. You can search for a christian name, surname, year, or even mother's maiden name. This will revolutionize family history! When I think of the hours spent transcribing the births, marriages, and deaths. Now it is all done for you.
