great work benny, i hope to be there one day!
as a matter of interest what do you do with your "confirmed" certificates?
I have got as far as laminating them once i have confirmed them, but i am at a loss as to how to store them for my children, for future reference.I thought of an album system but it does not seem to be protective enough, or am i being too fussy?
regards jackson.

Unfortunately by laminating them you have hastened their demise.

However as long as they are modern copies of certificates there is no real damage done.

Instead of laminating encapsulate in Mylar or similar. Encapsulation seals the artefact in an envelope but does not glue the artefact to the envelope allowing it to be removed if required.

I would never laminate mine.

I am pleased that I have completed the set and have all DOBs of all 8 great grandparents. As they were born across the country it is good. Durham, London, Suffolk, Oxfordshire, Essex. Diverse.

Also I have compiled a home use book on them with images of their birth certs and their marriages. I have also added a map of England highlighting the places throughout the country they were born in.
