Join our 'Brick Wall SWAT Team'

Can you spend some time on Saturday March 7th, and in the run-up, to help researchers break down their brick walls with our records? 

Do you love donning your detective hat to help people push their family trees back a generation? We're holding a 'Genealo-thon' on Saturday the 7th March, for Open Data Day 2020 (link opens in new tab) and are looking for a team of 'Brick-Wall-Bashers' to use the records in FreeBMD, FreeCEN and FreeREG to help break down some of our researchers' brick walls.

Things to note: 

  • You do not have to be a Free UK Genealogy volunteer to join the Brick Wall SWAT Team.
  • We will attempt a manageable number of cases. 
  • Help is provided on a voluntary basis and dependent upon the records we have available in our databases. 
  • While we will do our best, success cannot be guaranteed and we reserve the right not to progress any question which has insufficent information.

If you have the time, family history experience, and knowledge of how to use our websites, please register to help using the form below.
