You can:

  • order a copy of the Birth Brief in which a name appears for £2 per Birth Brief + SAE (stamped addressed envelope). This will be in Personal Ancestral File Pedigree Report format (see sample). Optionally you can get it as a file in GEDCOM format too.
  • contact the person who submitted the Birth Brief, provided that she or he is a current member of the society.
  • If you are a society member, you can use this Birth Brief form (needs Adobe Reader and opens in a new window) or create a GEDCOM file with comparable details to submit your own Birth Brief.

‘Birth Brief’ is the name given to five-generation ancestral (pedigree) charts containing the names and vital records — Birth/Baptism, Marriage and Death/Burial – shared by co-operating members of Berkshire Family History Society. Most of these will have some Berkshire entries. Others will have few or no connections with Berkshire — beyond the fact that the descendant who provided these details is (or was) a member of Berkshire Family History Society.

Birth Briefs are computerised for easy search and retrieval. This index gives SURNAMES and forenames with vital records by year and county. It currently contains over 37,000 names (November 2018).

For ‘living’ persons — defined as those born less than 100 years ago and for whom there is no confirmed death record — dates are replaced by ‘...’ in the Index and may not be included on any printed output that the society supplies.
