I have received an email today from a friend asking me to sign a petition, which if successful would make it free to see Birth/Marriage and death certs from 1837 - 1908. Original email below.
If you wish to sign the petition use the link below:

http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/OpenBMDrecords/

'Please pass on to any UK residents who may be willing to sign this important petition.
Sue Mills

I have managed to get 10 Downing Street to allow an e-petition looking for support to have open access to the registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths from 1837 to 1908.
This one act would enable all family historians and genealogists to find the right family certificate without having to purchase a copy certificate which turns out to be incorrect.
I hope you can support me in this as I feel it will make family History just that little bit easier, after all these registrations are over 100 years old.

The link is <http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/OpenBMDrecords/>
http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/OpenBMDrecords/

Please tell your friends.
Regards'
