The author has published two guides for Family Historians.
The first one is entitled 'Birth and Death Certificates - England and Wales 1837 to 1969'. (1999)
As on the website, this goes through the certificates column by column giving the variations that might be found and illustrated with certificate examples. It is a fuller and more elaborate version than the website. This is an invaluable reference for family historians trying to trace their English and Welsh ancestors.
The second one is entitled "Marriages and Certificates". (April 2000)
Again, the booklet takes you through the certificates column by column, but also gives a brief history of marriage registration which is relevant to the many complex variations that can be found today. There is a sizeable section on searching the indexes with some of the pitfalls and problems explained.
