I hope this Helps.
Thanks Brett for those bits of info.
I was actually wondering what years Familysearch went up to.
As far as I was aware ...
▬ for England & Wales, 'FamilySearch' uses the Records from "FindMyPast".
▬ for Scotland, 'FamilySearch' only has until about 1875/1880, I think.
▬ For Northern Ireland, I am not certain.
Thanks for that Brett
The FamilySearch records for England (& Wales) appear to extend to the following years:
Births: 2008 (although there are relatively few records for 2007 & even less for 2008)
Deaths: 2012 (but fewer records for that year than for previous years)
The collection titles for births and deaths do not reflect their actual content and I have needed to ascertain the above by undertaking searches on the most common English name (SMITH) for various, individual years, then using the collection filter function.
