Im not at all happy with these 2 :mad:

Why do they insist on changing things, different if it worked better but these are worse than ever :rolleyes:

Why cant they just leave things alone!

They are trying to make the NSW Archives as hard to use as TNA. :biggrin: Give them 7 out of 10 for almost making it.

I'm not changing the format of all the NSW BDM entries in my tree to match the new format.

Rookwood Cemeteries have done the same. Changed the format and excluded some vital information such as the Row no. Many records don't even mention the denomination now.

Don't know Ellie.

The RC Trust and site has not changed.

The Anglican and Independent (Methodist, Presby... etc) Trusts were combined into a single Trust for some reason. So the database changed.
